HIPAA Privacy and Security: Recent Trends in Regulation, Enforcement, and Risk Management

December 1, 2022
2:00 – 3:00 PM EST
1 CPE credit in the field of Business Law
1 CLE credit in PA and any jurisdiction that accepts reciprocal credits

HIPAA-covered entities and Business Associates are encouraged to perform an annual HIPAA Risk Analysis to benefit from the protections outlined in the 2021 HIPAA Safe Harbor Law. Privacy teams have always been required to understand where Protected Health Information (PHI) resides within their organization in order to meet minimum necessary and individual rights requirements.
These privacy obligations can be leveraged to help security teams perform the require HIPAA Risk Analysis. Additionally, while Privacy Compliance has historically been driven by policy and procedure to address requirements, it is now frequently looking toward more technical and security-oriented solutions to drive compliance. This one-hour webinar will highlight specific approaches to how privacy and security can align to meet regulatory obligations under HIPAA while driving operational efficiency and meeting business goals. Lastly, we will discuss how HIPAA requirements align to global privacy requirements and how organizations can best position themselves for any planned expansions into new global markets.

Health Apps and HIPAA Business Associates’ Rising Obligations in Privacy and Health Data

January 17, 2023
2:00 – 3:00 PM EST
1 CPE credit in the field of Business Law
1 CLE credit in PA and any jurisdiction that accepts reciprocal credits

Business Associates and mobile health apps are subject to rising obligations and increasing scrutiny by privacy and security regulators. This comes as regulators issue new guidance, reevaluate the application of existing rules, and seek to issue new regulations. Entities are struggling to understand what is required to fulfill their compliance obligations and contractual requirements. With Business Associates having more direct relationships with patients, the application of the HIPAA privacy, security, and breach notification rules are not as straight forward as they once were. Mobile health apps that have not previously been required to address privacy or security requirements are facing mounting obligations, such as under the U.S. Federal Trade Commission's new interpretation of the Health Breach Notification Rule. This session will explore recent guidelines, proposed rulemaking, and how Business Associates, and other non-HIPAA organizations, are addressing their growing compliance obligations.
