(You also may not be the one to do the interview if patients call back a day later.) • When on the phone and needing to leave a message, state, Hi, this is _______ I am calling from _____________Hospital, you have an appointment on (date), I need some additional information, and can you call me back at____________. (due to confidentiality we do not want to identify ourselves as the surgical unit, and we do not want to identify that the patient is having surgery) • Then go and check the lab book and pull any lab results and place them with the OR booking chart.

Rotech uses four main information systems daily and they are IMBS, eIntake, sisco, and Medsage. IMBS is the system we use to verify the patient’s information such as when the patient last ordered supplies and when they can reorder. We also look there to see if there are any held item codes to see if we can ship out the patient’s supplies. A held item codes lets us know that their local store is needing some information either from the patient, the provider, or the patients’ health care provider and we cannot send supplies until that is taken care of. The eIntake system is where we place the orders and keep all the contact information for the patient.

All practioners need to comply with the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) privacy rule (Fisher, 2013). The privacy rule gives rights to health professionals, as well as to their patients. Under the new law, psychologists can decide whether to release their psychotherapy notes to patients, unless patients would have access to their psychotherapy notes under state law (APA.org, 2010). Though the privacy rule does afford patients the right to access and inspect their health records, psychotherapy notes are treated differently: Patients do not have the right to obtain a copy of these under HIPAA. And when a psychologist denies a patient access to these notes, the denial isn't subject to a review process, as it is with other records.
