Please join 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.
