New Modified HIPAA Compliance During the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic Emergency

Live Webinar

  • 60 minutes

Medical records and protected health information laws are well known in the health care professions. Exceptions have always existed to these privacy laws, such as those for law enforcement and for public health purpose.In the face of the global pandemic of the COVID-19 coronavirus, additional exceptions are being moved to the forefront of HIPAA confidentiality with relaxed enforcement of the HIPAA rules as announced by the Department of Health and Human Services.These are called notices of enforcement discretion. Does this mean that the rule is no longer in effect? Does it mean the rule is in effect, but the government enforcement officials will “look the other way” at this time?

Erase the fear, uncertainty, and doubt about the current status of the COVID-19 coronavirus exceptions for HIPAA and the application of HIPAA privacy exceptions for public health activities and law enforcement now in effect that transcend local, state, and national governments. This new webinar covers the modified HIPAA privacy in light of the COVID-19 coronavirus emergency pandemic.

Join this session with expert speaker Mark R. Brengelman, where he will discuss the most important, current Notices of Enforcement Discretion, including those applicable to community-based testing sites, business associates, and telehealth.With specific regard to telehealth, the health care practitioner must not ignore applicable state laws on the provision of mental health services via electronic methods because those state laws exist independent of the federal HIPAA laws now being the subject of relaxed enforcement at the federal level.
