In the highly regulated space of health information privacy and security, it’s important to keep up to date on policy developments and enforcement action trends. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights is responsible for the enforcement of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and has been increasingly active in recent years. A number of new OCR initiatives have been launched, and the results of “desk audits” have now been tabulated and made public. Additionally, state attorneys general offices have reached settlements of substantial amounts in the last two years, sending a shot across the bow of organizations processing sensitive and personal health information.
Join us to hear an in-depth review and report out on these trends and more, from a leading Washington-based health information privacy legal expert and a senior manager from a large West Coast-based health care provider. Both have experience working within HHS and share those insights and perspectives on the program.
