The last few years have been busy ones in the privacy landscape. Several states have proposed or passed laws that give individuals a broad array of rights when it comes to the use of their personal information. Part of this new privacy movement also includes changes currently out for comment in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for HIPAA Privacy Rule released by HHS on December 10, 2020. This NPRM directly addresses privacy issues brought on or heightened by COVID.

 

 

On this HealthIT Answers webinar, you will learn:

  • How new privacy rules line up with the Notices of Enforcement Discretion around disclosures related to the COVID Pandemic and public health.
  • How do these changes fit into state-wide legislation like CCPA and other states proposing similar legislation.
  • What are the consequences for failing to maintain good privacy practices.
  • Can healthcare organizations “future proof” their privacy practices to avoid major shifts as new rules come into play.
