HIPAA Business Associate Agreements Under HITECH

Rachel V. Rose, JD, MBA, principal with Rachel V. Rose – Attorney at Law, P.L.L.C., Houston, TX presents. “As part of the Department’s effort to fully protect patients’ health information and their rights under HIPAA, OCR has issued this important new fact sheet clearly explaining a business associate’s liability,” said OCR Director Roger Severino. In 2013, under the authority granted by the HITECH Act, OCR issued the Final Omnibus Rule that, among other things, identified provisions of the HIPAA Rules that apply directly to business associates and for which business associates are directly liable. One of the most notable items is the Business Associate Agreement. The presentation highlights enforcement actions, as well as key compliance items business associates and subcontractors need to focus on.

The COVID vaccine is here. Are you ready? While the vaccine has been long awaited, not everyone is planning to get it. In fact, nearly 35 percent of people say they won’t, and those who do want to get it won’t be sure about when, where, or how. So you’ve got your work cut out for you. Join Cindy Williams, vice president and chief pharmacy officer at Riverside Health System, and Leslie Baker, chief experience officer at a large physician group in New York for this fact-filled hour of the latest updates and best practices on the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines.

Healthcare’s Enterprise Cyber Risk Management Imperative

Bob Chaput, Founder and Executive Chairman of the Board of Clearwater, a provider of healthcare compliance and cyber risk management software and consulting services is presenting with us. Healthcare organizations continue to see escalating numbers of cyberattacks. It is no longer a matter of if your organization will be targeted, but when. What is at stake? Everything. Patient lives are at risk when their medical record data is changed by a hacker or encrypted by a ransomware attack. The confidentiality of patient information is at risk, as is evident from the hundreds of data breaches that make headlines each year. The financial well-being of your organization is at risk, not only from regulatory fines and penalties, but also from legal fees, settlements, and the damage to your organization’s reputation.

In his new book Stop the Cyber Bleeding, cyber risk management expert Bob Chaput cuts through the jargon to provide timely and practical cyber risk management guidance for healthcare organization leaders. During this session, he will share some of the key insights from the book and discuss how to establish, implement, and mature an Enterprise Cyber Risk Management (ECRM) program.
