One of Moravian Manor’s priorities is protecting the privacy of residents and staff. In April 2003, the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) introduced new national standards to protect the confidentiality of patients’ medical records and other personal health information. Developed by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), these new standards provide patients with access to their medical records and more control over how their personal health information is used and disclosed.
In accordance with these standards, Moravian Manor implemented specific strategies to ensure that health care and other confidential information in written, electronic, or spoken form remain private.
