Dental patient names on radiographs and HIPAA violations
Is it a HIPPA violation to have a patient’s entire name printed out on the radiograph? If I print a radiograph it will show only the patient’s first name and first initial of the last name. We have always received radiographs labeled with the date and the patient’s entire first and last name. Can someone explain this to me or help me find the information in the HIPPA compliance manual?
