Webinar/Audio Conference FAQs

The public health emergency we are currently experiencing as a result of the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus has forced changes to many federal and state regulations, including HIPAA and the HiTech Act. In this Lunch and Learn webinar, compliance expert Debbie Forde, will share the details on the changes to privacy and security rules and explain the impact of them to your medical practice. The Privacy rules remain in effect; however, some regulations have relaxed to allow appropriate use and disclosure that protects public health and patients to be treated virtually during quarantine without risk of future penalties arising from an audit. Learn when to share patient health information and who you can share it with during the current crisis. Understand the minimum necessary requirement and which disclosures it impacts. Clarify where the line is between a good and bad faith effort by a covered entity engaged in telehealth communications.
