Implementation Notes:

Without the ability to segment information, providers are unable to provide adequate communications with affiliated persons and organizations. For instance, if confidential information cannot be extracted from a health report, providers may not be able to share any information with family members without risking breach of patient confidentiality. Further, appropriate billing for health care service provision is impeded when providers are unable to segment the information provided to payers, again risking patient confidentiality breach. (Providers may not be able to bill at all in such circumstances.
Communication regarding health care provision is especially complicated as it pertains to minors; being able to share as much information as possible without risking a breach of appropriate patient confidentiality is vital for both optimal patient care and for appropriate coding and billing of care services. Optimal care provision, communications, and reimbursements are only achievable if health care data can be segmented to allow patient confidentiality to be maintained appropriately.
