Protected Health Information (PHI) is among the most private and sensitive data, and the difficulty of protecting it is only increasing. In order to protect patients and consumers from potential harm – medical and financial identity theft and reputational risks – caused by unauthorized disclosures of sensitive medical information, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and state attorneys general expect covered entities and their business associates to mitigate risk from incidents and comply with applicable breach notification laws including states and HIPAA Final Rule.
In this on-demand webinar, the nationally-recognized HIPAA and HITECH expert, Adam Greene, Partner at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP, and CEO & President of RADAR, Mahmood Sher-Jan, discuss best practices for successfully navigating the growing regulatory complexities of compliance with breach laws and incident response management. Listen as they walk through ways to build an operational and compliant incident response program that meets state, federal, and contractual obligations, as well as risk mitigation tactics to protect patient privacy and your organization’s reputation.
Among the insights you will learn from this webinar:
- Key elements that make up an operational and compliant incident response program
- How to streamline your incident response process for greater consistency and efficiency
- Overview of incident and breach benchmarking statistics for the healthcare industry
