My colleague Mark Marshall just posted some useful guidance on the new HIPAA provisions. Check it out here: Essential HIPAA Rules Changing Fundraising Practices. One of my recent posts provides some of the operations basics for you to consider.
For those on the fundraising operations side of house, there are some great improvements here in terms of data availability. And, for those of you who sometimes wrestle with compliance issues, the new rules make it even more clear that a sophisticated data-driven grateful patient program is acceptable. What’s more, it can now include department and physician information that should allow for even more data crunching (completed in a sensitive fashion, of course).
Good luck moving forward with these new provisions!
