5th Annual Review of Medical Privacy and Data Security Enforcement
Audio seminar explores changes to expect in rules governing the use of patient and employee health data
In any change in White House administration, healthcare executives and employers naturally wonder what changes to expect in the rules governing the use and protection of personal health information. However, President-Elect Obama ran a campaign based on the theme of change, and that commitment has substantially increased attention to what new regulatory initiatives lie ahead.
Speculation is rampant during the Obama transition, but some conclusions already can be drawn based on what is already in place and even on areas of agreement between the Bush Administration and the incoming Obama Administration.
To help healthcare organizations and employers understand the new regulatory and enforcement environment, Melamedia, LLC, publishers of Health Information Privacy/Security Alert sponsored a 90-minute audio seminar:
The 5th Annual Review of Medical Privacy and Data Security Enforcement
Participants are briefed on:
- The outlook for enforcement of the HIPAA privacy and data security rules;
