Pitfalls to Avoid in New HIPAA/HITECH Regs: Compliance Deadline Sept. 23

September 11, 2013

Morgan Lewis partner W. Reece Hirsch will present a webinar on Pitfalls to Avoid in New HIPAA/HITECH Reg: Compliance Deadline Sept. 23 with AISHealth.

HIPAA covered entities and business associates must be in full compliance by Sept. 23 with the massive new patient privacy, security and breach regulations issued by HHS's Office for Civil Rights (OCR) on Jan. 25, 2013. The new requirements address a wide range of complex topics, including business associates/subcontractors, breach notification, sale of PHI, marketing, fundraising, research, the Notice of Privacy Practices, an individual's right to access and request restrictions, and much more. And they reinvent the relationship between covered entities and their business associates, which are now regulated directly by OCR, and provide HHS with an arsenal of new enforcement weapons that make noncompliance riskier than ever. Join this webinar to learn more about the most potentially damaging new HIPAA/HITECH risk areas and strategies for dealing with them.
