Andrea Linna and
Jonathan Ishee as they discuss proposed changes to HIPAA and HITECH that may impact
covered entities and business associates. Earlier this year, the Department
of Health and Human Services published
proposed modifications to HIPAA and HITECH. Covered entities and business associates should
prepare now for an overhaul to their HIPAA policies and protocols in 2022.
These modifications will impact all covered entities and business
associates, requiring updates to policies, procedures, security standards,
notices of privacy practices, authorization and disclosure forms, and
business associate agreements, among other things.
This webinar will focus on helping covered entities and business associates
prepare for possible changes to:
The patient acknowledgement of notice of privacy practices
The minimum necessary standard
Allowable disclosures related to care coordination and case management
Disclosures for health emergencies
Individuals’ rights to access their protected health information (PHI)
Fees charged for access to PHI
Andrea and Jonathan will also discuss the newest changes to HITECH under HR
7898 and proposed changes to the National Institute of Standards and
Technology “recognized cybersecurity practices,” which covered entities and
business associates should incorporate into their cybersecurity framework.
