HIPAA Webinar: Updates to The Privacy Rule

Posted in Rulemaking, Webinar

Please join us this Tuesday, March 19, 2013 for a complimentary webinar to further discuss the release of the Final Omnibus HIPAA Rule by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.  This is the first in a three-part miniseries following last month’s webinar, where we focused generally on the sweeping changes to the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules.

On Tuesday from noon until 12:30, we will explore the changes to the Privacy Rule, including:

  • Greater restrictions on provider use and disclosure of PHI;
  • Increased individual rights to PHI; and
  • What must be done by September.

The webinar will probe into marketing and fundraising involving PHI, how providers can best respond to patients’ requests for their health information, and how your organization should address these changes both internally (via employee training and updating policies and procedures) and externally (by revising the notice of privacy practices).
