Health Information Technology Web Conference Series
The HITECH Act’s “meaningful use” requirements, health care reform, and value-based purchasing initiatives have made the effective procurement and implementation of health information technology (HIT) an imperative for health care providers and payors.
The government’s new punitive approach to enforcing HIPAA’s privacy and security requirements under the HITECH Act also means that covered entities and their business associates must be vigilant in assuring that their information systems comply with all applicable standards.
To stay on top of these issues — as well as emerging issues raised by wireless technology, personal health records, and other new technologies — join an experienced team of Foley attorneys and industry professionals for the following programs in our new Health Information Technology Web Conference Series.
Health Information Technology Procurement and Implementation:
- A Strategic Approach
- Key Legal Issues Raised by Electronic Health Records
- Privacy and Security in the HITECH Era
- Emerging Issues in Health Information Technology
These programs will focus on the key legal and strategic issues providers, payors, and other health care businesses must successfully address in order to remain competitive in today’s environment.
Who Should Attend
CIOs, compliance and privacy officers, legal counsel, and other health care organization leaders who must navigate the complexities of health information system procurement, implementation, and management, including EHRs, billing systems, and emerging issues such as wireless medical devices and personal health records.
