It's been some time since the HIPAA privacy deadline has been in place for providers and large health plans -- small health plans have to be in compliance as of April 14. Questions still remain around the implementation of the rules and the interpretation of them.
During "HIPAA Privacy: The One-Year Impact," a 90-minute April 14th audio conference on CD-ROM, our expert panel of speakers help you to address the challenges you still face with the HIPAA Privacy regulation.
Our speakers include:
- Stephen Bernstein, Partner with McDermott, Will & Emery
- Susan Brownell, Assistant Vice President of Privacy at National Health Insurance Company
- Mikel Lynch, Privacy Officer with the University of Missouri
This program gives you clear answers on the troublesome aspects of the HIPAA privacy rule, including:
- accounting of disclosures;
- education and re-training of the workforce;
- fund raising;
- going HIPAA "overboard";
- inadvertent disclosures;
- working with individuals/organizations that "invent" their own HIPAA rules;
- state pre-emption and prompt pay laws; and
- what actually constitutes the medical record.
WHO WILL BENEFIT: CEOs, privacy officers, HIPAA team leaders, compliance officers, business development and strategic planning directors.
Here's what our participants said about the live audio conference:
"Presenters knew the topic well. In my healthcare system we have to make sure every dollar counts. Our education budget has been cut drastically. I am always pleased when I believe the money was spent wisely," said a privacy officer of a health system.
"Excellent examples of do's and doníts," "The speakers were well versed, clear and concise," "well prepared slides in advance," said a group of participants from the auditor's office of a state agency.
