HIPAA Privacy Rule Primer — What the HIPAA Privacy Officer Needs to Know


This Webinar discusses the foundations of HIPAA and how they relate to the issues of today. The rules to be discussed encompass the full range of the HIPAA Privacy Rule, with particular focus on the areas that have seen changes in the rules, technologies, or practices that impact HIPAA compliance. Patient rights and controls on uses and disclosures have been in flux, HHS has issued guidance, and other regulations related to personal information have been enacted or modified. Healthcare entities face significant challenges with issues today that didn’t even exist a few years ago, such as insecure communications, Ransomware, and the E.U.’s GDPR, protecting all kinds of personal information. As opioid issues have spread, interactions with the SAMHSA 42 CFR Part 2 regulations on information relating to substance use disorders have taken center stage. There is no shortage of topics of interest to the HIPAA Privacy Officer.

This session will focus on understanding what are the issues that a HIPAA Privacy Officer faces, and what are the areas of HIPAA that are changing. While the rules have been in place for years now, the focus of their application has changed as technologies and practices have changed, and changes to the rules are on the horizon. In addition, there are changes in other regulations that interact with HIPAA requirements, and that require consideration in your planning. The session will discuss the latest topics of interest and describe how they relate to the regulations and their enforcement today.
