(Recorded Webinar) Industry Update on the NPRM HIPAA Privacy Rule to Support Reproductive Health Care Privacy
The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) recently issued a Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) to strengthen federal privacy protections for reproductive health records. In this Industry Update, the presenters will review the disclosures permitted under the current HIPAA Privacy Rule and detail the changes proposed in the NPRM. The presenters will discuss the proposed prohibition on disclosing reproductive health records for investigations or prosecutions targeting health care providers or patients and the proposed requirement that covered entities receive an attestation from anyone requesting reproductive health records that states that the records will not be used or disclosed for any such investigation or prosecution. The presenters will also review the proposed updates to the notice of privacy practices.
