HITECH Act Changes HIPAA for Healthcare Webinar
This is a complimentary webinar offering by TMC.
The HITECH section of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), signed into law in February of 2009, mandated some very significant changes in the HIPAA regulations.
Breach regulations have proven to be the big challenge for healthcare practices. There are ways to position your practice so that a breach does not have to be reported to the patient, HHS, and possibly the local media. Breachs can be very expensive and time consuming to report therefore prevention becomes your best strategy. Breach is just one part of the HITECH Rule which impacts your facility or practice operations. Join this webinar to learn about other activites which are addressed by HITECH and the upcoming final regulations which will be published in 2012.
