Elements of Optical Design: Design Your Office with HIPAA in Mind

Barbara Wright of Barbara Wright Design shows how she designs the physical space of an optometry office to meet HIPAA requirements for patient privacy. “If you design in privacy beginning with the plans,” she advises, “you’ll have an office where private conversations remain private.”

KEY DESIGN POINTS

Locate patient records out of sight; position computer monitors where privacy can be maintained

Build complete rooms with sound batting so that private doctor/patient conversations cannot be overheard

Create a privacy area at the payment station
