Data privacy is more complex in today's electronic world than it was keeping paper records secure. HIPAA Privacy & Security, along with ARRA and HITECH, all provide rules to help protect and secure patient information. When protected health information is potentially breached, it is important to follow a process to correctly mitigate the situation. This presentation will focus on HIPAA Privacy and Security, the impact that ARRA and HITECH have brought to the rules, as well as the best practice for investigating a potential breach and how to respond to assure you are doing the right thing - every time.
Administrators, CEOs, CFOs, CIOs/IT staff, DoN/nursing staff, physician/providers and others given responsibilities related to security.
