HITECH Enforcement Webinar

The Department of Health and Human Services interim final regulations on notification of breaches involving unsecured PHI became effective 30 days after publication in the Federal Register on August 24, 2009. Covered entities and their business associates must now be in compliance. These regulations require notification of a breach of unsecured PHI to the individual, the federal government, and, under certain circumstances, the local media.

Aegis Compliance & Ethics Center presented a webinar on Friday, August 28, 2009 to address the impact of these regulations on providers and business associates and give practical advice for meeting compliance standards. The 75 minute discussion includes:
  • An overview of federal regulations
  • New steps to be documented in a breach investigation
  • What should go into your organization’s breach notification policy
  • Review of multiple case scenarios and how the notification rules would apply
Presenting faculty:
  • Brian Annulis, JD, MHA
  • Ryan Meade, JD
  • Michael Roach, JD, MHSA
  • Lynn Asher, RN, MHA
