The first of a two event series on network governance, this is a key opportunity to explore the various considerations that go into the development of a comprehensive and sustainable governance structure for nationwide health information exchange.
Designed to provide a foundational understanding of the concepts that will be critical to an upcoming rulemaking regarding the governance of the nationwide health information network as called for in the HITECH Act, presentations and discussion will focus on network governance generally, examining some of the wide range of activities that make up “governance,” including regulations, public-private partnerships, advisory bodies, delegations of authority to stakeholder groups and others, forbearance, etc.

The passing of the HITECH Act of 2009 mandated additional guidelines for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). On August 24, 2009 the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued interim Security Breach Notification rules mandating compliance by September 23, 2009. All Covered Entities (CEs) and Business Associates (BAs) as defined by HIPAA are required to comply.
HITECH Answers provides to its subscribers a two-part Webinar series that deals directly with the HITECH Act’s impact on HIPAA and what CEs and BAs must do now to stay compliant. Presented by Jeff Rickman, Attorney-at-law and HIPAA specialist.
