I attend the annual National HIPAA Summit in Washington D.C. every year to keep on top of developments with HIPAA and related topics, and so I was thrilled to find out that one of the Co-Chairs of the ONC Privacy and Security Tiger Team recommended that I be asked to speak on HIPAA and its implications on Health Information Exchange (HIE) at this year's event. The 20th National HIPAA Summit will run from March 26-28th and take place at the Renaissance Hotel in Washington, D.C. You can review the full intenerary here.
I am scheduled to speak on HIPAA and HIE during the afteronnon session of March 27 (Day 2), and will be joining Dr. William R. Braithwaite, MD, PhD (aka "Dr. HIPAA"), Joy Pritts, Esq., the Chief Privacy Officer for the ONC, and Deven McGraw, Esq., Co-Chair of the ONC Privacy and Security Tiger Team, who will be speaking on related topics during this afternoon segment.
The annual HIPAA Summit will provide the most up-to-date information on the status and schedule for publication of the new regulations. Comprehensive presentations by leading regulators from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Office for Civil Rights, and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, provide unique insights. Private sector leaders will add practical advice from their many experiences in implementation. The HIPAA Summit will address privacy and security and data breach changes and challenges and the legal and policy issues implicated, as well as electronic health record adoption issues. It will also cover developments and requirements for transactions and code sets and operating rules about how they are being implemented. It will also include training sessions for HIPAA privacy and security professionals who intend to apply for certification.
This is an event not to be missed by anyone who needs to keep on top of the most recent trends and developments in health care information privacy, and security.
