Rules and Regulations

 

ADA and Other Groups Petition Against FTC "Red Flags" Rule
The purpose of the "Red Flags" rule in the US is to ensure the protection of patient private information. Interest is driven by the massive number of identity thefts that occur in the US, close to 9 million cases yearly. While for the time being the FTC has delayed the enforcement deadline to June 1, 2010, it is a good time to take a look at how your clinic might be affected.

  • An explanation of how the incident occurred
