12:00 p.m. Central
On September 23, 2013, the Office for Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will begin enforcing far-reaching changes in the HIPAA privacy, security, and breach notification requirements mandated by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) Act and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA).

These new requirements, and additional changes to HIPPAA deemed appropriate by HHS, are set forth in a 563-page omnibus Final Rule published by HHS on January 25, 2013. The changes in the Final Rule are far-reaching and significantly strengthen privacy protections for patient health information, while enhancing HHS’ ability to enforce these protections. Join us for a Web conference discussing the Final Rule and how to prepare for it.

During this Web conference, we will cover:

  • The changes made by the Final Rule, including the expansion of the definition of "business associate" to include subcontractors and other parties not previously covered
  • Changes in the risk analysis for breaches that will likely require breach notification more frequently
  • Practical tips for how to implement the changes in an efficient and cost-effective way
  • How covered entities can minimize their potential liability for the breaches or other violations of their business associations

Speakers

  • Michael Scarano, Jr., Partner, Foley & Lardner LLP
  • M. Leeann Habte, Associate, Foley & Lardner LLP
  • Michael H. Woolever, Partner, Foley & Lardner LLP
