Course Materials

This CLE course will guide healthcare counsel through key proposed changes to the HIPAA Privacy Rule. The panel will discuss how these changes potentially will impact healthcare providers and others in the healthcare industry.

Description

In January 2021, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services published a 90+ page Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for significant changes to the HIPAA Privacy Rule. The proposed changes are intended to foster care coordination and case management for individuals and providers.

The proposed changes would strengthen individual access and improve information sharing related to care coordination and management, affording healthcare providers additional flexibility to share information.

HIPAA-covered entities will need to make significant revisions to their HIPAA policies, procedures, and practices. Updates to forms will also be required – including changes to the HIPAA notice of privacy practices.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys examines the proposed changes to the HIPAA Privacy Rule. The panel will discuss what these changes may mean for healthcare providers and others in the healthcare industry, and will share insights on the status of the rulemaking.
