The Problem Addressed by this Webinar

HIPAA Covered Entities and Business Associates of all types and sizes are at serious risk of health information breaches caused by aggressive criminal attacks and their own lack of attention to protective safeguards required by HIPAA. Admittedly the HIPAA regulations are difficult to read. They are written in legalistic language and arranged in confusing order with frequent obscure and even inaccurate internal references. However, while the number of health information breaches grows rapidly, the number of private class action lawsuits based on those breaches is growing much faster. And government enforcement is also on the rise, in part to deal with medical identity theft, the fastest growing and most lucrative type of identity theft in America today.

The Secret to HIPAA Compliance

The HIPAA Rules are a blueprint to prevent health information breaches. And there is a secret to HIPAA compliance – HIPAA Rules are easy to follow step-by-step when you know the steps.

HIPAA and the New Rules Regarding Reproductive Healthcare

The Biden-Harris Administration, through the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) at the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) has issued a Final Rule to modify the HIPAA Privacy Rule to support reproductive health care privacy. This Final Rule is one of many actions taken by HHS to protect access to and privacy of reproductive health care after the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that has led to extreme state abortion bans and other restrictions on reproductive freedom in 21 states. To better protect information related to reproductive health care and to bolster patient-provider confidentiality, organizations providing these services will need to implement required changes. This webinar will review those changes and provide guidance on new HIPAA Privacy Rule requirements. Webinar Objectives Definitions, Rules, CFR, & Acronyms What is Protected Health Information?
