Press release

Ciox to Host Webinar Addressing Federal Court Decision On Misuse of Patient-Directed Record Requests

Sponsored by Businesswire




A federal court recently ruled in the case of Ciox v. Azar that the HIPAA patient rate applies only to patients and not when records are provided to third parties, invalidating any contrary government guidance.




Join Ciox for a free and informative webinar that will address the recent federal decision on the misuse of patient-directed record requests. Participants will gain a clear understanding of the decision, including implications for handling patient access requests versus third-party requests.




Ciox will also review civil monetary penalties the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has issued regarding patient access and distill suggestions for how organizations can protect against potential OCR complaints.




Webinar Topics Include:


  • Learn how to handle patient access requests and differentiate between patient access requests and third-party requests


  • Understand the outcome of the federal court’s decision in Ciox v. Azar as it applies to third-party access and fees


  • Discover ways to be proactive in protecting against potential OCR violations




Ciox always has and will continue to actively support patients’ secure and unrestricted access to their medical records, including making the process easier.
