Health care providers will ask patients to sign a form saying that they received a copy of the notice of privacy practices. The law does not require patients to sign this. If a patient refuses to sign, it does not prevent a health care provider from using or disclosing information in ways already permitted under HIPAA.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 was put in place to help ensure the privacy and ease of access of your medical records. A HIPAA authorization form is a document in that allows an appointed person or party to share specific health information with another person or group.
HIPAA does not impose any specific time limit on authorizations. For example, an authorization could state that it is good for 30 days, 90 days or even for 2 years. An authorization could also provide that it expires when the client reaches a certain age. In this case, the 90-day expiration date is set by the agency.
Health care providers will ask patients to sign a form saying that they received a copy of the notice of privacy practices. The law does not require patients to sign this. If a patient refuses to sign, it does not prevent a health care provider from using or disclosing information in ways already permitted under HIPAA.
The law requires that a HIPAA authorization form contain specific core elements to be valid. These elements include: A description of the specific information to be used or disclosed. The name or other specific identification of the person(s), or class of persons, authorized to make the requested use or disclosure.
A: No. The HIPAA Privacy Rule does not require you to notarize authorization forms or have a witness. Though taking the time to fill out an authorization form and get a patient's signature is an extra step, it's an important one that you can't afford to overlook.
After that, the regulation generally requires that you retain any signed Acknowledgement for at least six years after the patient is no longer active in your practice.

Signatures: In general, a patient age 18 or older is the only person with legal authority to sign this form. For patients younger than 18, generally the patient's parent or legal guardian must sign on behalf of the patient. There are many exceptions, however, to these general rules.
A client's initials are considered to be identifying for the purposes of determining if a given piece of information is PHI under HIPAA, because they are derived from names. This doesn't mean that using client initials instead of their full names isn't helpful. It just isn't deidentifying.
It notes that derivations of one of the 18 data elements, such as a patient's initials or last four digits of a Social Security number, are considered PHI.
Chatting about patients is an occupational hazard in nursing. While you won't violate HIPAA laws by discussing a patient with another member of their care team, you might if you gossip about or discuss their case with uninvolved coworkers, even if they work in the same area.
Displaying names, especially when it's limited to first names and/or initials, does not breach the Privacy Rule nor, for that matter, do sign-in logs, patient names on hospital doors, or publicly available treatment schedules. All of these cases are well within the application of HIPAA privacy regulations.
iMessage is a built-in instant messaging (IM) service offered by Apple for all its devices.
