June Webinar: HIPAA / HITECH Refresher
Tuesday, June 14, 2011 - 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT - COMPLETED
The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (the HITECH Act) made dramatic changes to the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules. The Department of Labor has recently requested an increased budget for enforcement of HIPAA, and enforcement training courses are being conducted to help state attorneys general begin to implement the new rules. With enforcement efforts ramping up, understanding and compliance with the law is more important than ever.
This webinar will consist of an overview of general HIPAA Privacy and Security rules, focusing on what has changed since enactment of the HITECH Act. Specifically, the webinar will address the roles and responsibilities of plan sponsors, insurance carriers and business associates, and will also include a discussion of the new breach notification rules, the expanded application of civil and criminal penalties and new rules governing electronic health records.
