Please join FMI as we welcome Olsson Frank Weeda Terman Matz PC (“OFW Law”) attorneys Richard L. Frank, Arthur Y. Tsien, and Jonathan M. Weinrieb for an insightful webinar focused on the new HIPAA regulations under the HITECH Act.

The webinar will concentrate on a number of key changes to the HIPAA Privacy, Security, and Enforcement Rules, including:

  • Issues concerning “marketing” with a focus on the new rule’s requirements for “authorization” for communications where the covered entity receives financial remuneration for making the communications from a third party whose product or service is being promoted.

    • HHS’s maintenance of the “face-to-face” exception.

    • HHS’s implementation of the HITECH Act’s “refill reminder” exception:

    • Types of qualifying messages; and

    • What constitutes “reasonable compensation.”

  • Operational issues such as:

    • Direct application and enforcement of the HIPAA regulations to business associates and their subcontractors for regulatory violations;

    • The new, lower threshold for what constitutes a reportable “breach” of unsecured (i.e., unencrypted) PHI and associated breach notification standards for covered entities and their business associates;

    • Covered entity liability for the actions of their business associates;

    • Required modifications to business associate agreements; and

    • Hybrid entity status; including restrictions on designation of “internal” business associates.

The new rules have a September 23, 2013, compliance date so sign up now and get up to speed.
