The use of information technology continues to expand in health care. Though new technologies provide many opportunities and benefits for consumers, they also pose new risks. Because of these increased risks, the new Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) included national standards for the privacy of protected health information, the security of electronic protected health information, and breach notification to consumers. HITECH act also requires HHS to perform periodic audits of covered entity and business associate compliance with the HIPAA Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Rules.

Under HIPAA, Breach is defined as “An impermissible use or disclosure of protected health information that compromises the security or privacy  such that the use or disclosure poses a significant risk of financial, reputational, or other harm to the affected individual.”  Join the industry experts in this  90-minute workshop to understand, implement and comply with the regulations.
