Medicine will never be practiced again in the way we used to practice it.

A rather intriguing note from a doctor of mine had me thinking about the future of healthcare after COVID. The outbreak began and has since accelerated among today’s most significant courses in healthcare. That is, remaining as contactless as possible.

But business is business, so it has to run. However, for the safety of those in need of such services and medical practitioners, in-person visits are discouraged.

You very well know that this virtual practice is unlikely, right? I mean, how would you feel about remote surgery? Hilarious, eh? That is why you should adapt. And that includes utilizing technology to at least reduce the physical contact whenever possible. Online forms are a great tool to commence your new health practice.

Did COVID affect HIPAA laws?

Yes, your new health-related practice must be HIPAA compliant. Coronavirus affected people and businesses greatly. But when it comes to HIPAA, much has remained the same. Clearly defined requirements on the use and disclosure of protected health information did not change even after the coronavirus.

What COVID-19 has done is loosening up the law enforcement. Healthcare providers are given a little leeway on how they diagnose remote patients. After all, the pandemic is a national emergency to each state. Nevertheless, rules concerning privacy, security, and breach notifications under HIPAA remained the same.
