The HIPAA Summit

The much-anticipated final HIPAA privacy regulations were issued on December 20, 2000. The regulations were made applicable to all individually identifiable health information, regardless of whether the information is or has been in electronic form. These regulations will profoundly affect many aspects of the financing and delivery of healthcare in the United States.

In October of 2000, over 1,300 registrants attended the First National HIPAA Summit in Washington, D.C. The Summit is now being reconvened with an expert faculty of approximately 125 to analyze the implications of the Final HIPAA privacy regulations.
