Categories: ,


As the sheer scope of health information and electronic health record (EHR) functionality continues to expand, health information professionals continue to struggle to operationalize the Electronic Health Information (EHI) and Designated Record Set (DRS) definitions. With the Information Blocking rule in full effect, there’s still an element of fear. How do I decide what’s in and what’s out? How do I handle those more controversial data elements we can’t seem to find consensus on within my organization? Should I revisit my Legal Health Record (LHR) definition? This webinar will provide strategies to help define the “ins and outs” of your DRS. Spend an hour with Haugen Consulting to set your fears aside and demystify the process of operationalizing these definitions.


  • Apply “ins and outs” strategy to defining the Designated Record Set
  • Examine real-world scenarios to organizing your DRS
  • Recognize the DRS as the foundation to both information blocking and HIPAA Privacy Rule compliance
