So many of us are now faced with not only the challenges associated with working from home but having the whole family home as well. There are daily news stories about how to cope with kids who want to go see their friends, work-out routines without gym equipment, and virtual dance parties streamed live via social media. But as members of the health care industry, we must always keep the patient’s information as a top concern. Read below for more information!

Whether you are working off your work computer hauled into your dining room or a laptop on the kitchen table there are steps you can take to make sure personal health information (PHI) stays secure. Just like being at the office make sure you are locking your computer every time you walk away. If you are talking on the phone make sure you are in a closed room where PHI cannot be heard by other members of your household. Keep your internet tabs to a minimum and close out all unnecessary programs while PHI is open.
