HIPAA-13 Privacy Summit
September 28, 2006
Healthcare privacy and data security has become one of the major policy, technology and operations issues in American healthcare. HIPAA Compliance is not only complex, but also extremely costly as healthcare moves to electronic data interchange and the Internet and beyond to a variety of new health information technology initiatives. The HIPAA Summit conference series provides a road map to understanding the complex requirements of federal and state law and illuminates strategies for compliance. Through an expert faculty of 75 and over 30 sessions, the Thirteenth National HIPAA Summit will go well beyond the simple recitation of the federal HIPAA law and regulations.
Summit will provide the most up-to-date and sophisticated information on the status and construction of the HIPAA regulations through the presentations of the leading HIPAA regulators from the Department of Health and Human Services. The Summit will focus on the crucial issues of the implementation of the transactions, code sets and identifiers and the security rule, and will feature practical case studies from the field, including presentations by leading privacy, security and compliance officers from around the country. The Summit will address the complex financial, operational and technical issues that must be addressed not only to comply with the technical requirements of the law, but also to integrate new technologies in order to enhance the efficiency, quality and accessibility of healthcare services.
Crowell & Moring's Jim Jordan will be making a presentation entitled "Workplace Privacy."
