HIPAA SUMMIT OVERVIEW
Information privacy and security have gone from seeming afterthoughts for many to front-page news that have grabbed the attention of the public and C-suites alike. Health information privacy and security is no exception. Government-led interoperability efforts seek to unleash the power of electronic health information, raising significant concerns about the limitations of HIPAA and potential loss of privacy and security of the information. The country tries to tackle a devastating opioid epidemic, shining a spotlight on the role that privacy of substance use disorder information should play in the epidemic. Health care sector and tech companies unite on projects to advance artificial intelligence, requiring the application of decades-old privacy laws to ventures that once seemed like science fiction.
The HIPAA Summit is the place to go to stay on top of all of this and more. You will receive practical information to improve compliance with HIPAA and other privacy and security laws governing health information. The HIPAA Summit will bring together current and former regulators from the Office for Civil Rights, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Federal Trade Commission, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. You will hear from thought leaders and practitioners at some of the nation’s top health care systems and health plans. The HIPAA Summit will include sessions on HIPAA enforcement initiatives, new cyber security threats, opportunities to hear privacy and security officers share best practices, and lessons on what challenges are to come and how to tackle them.
