(Recorded Webinar) Preparing for the End of the Federal PHE: HIPAA
During the federal PHE, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) issued a limited waiver of HIPAA sanctions and penalties; notifications of enforcement discretion for telehealth, business associates, community-based testing sites and online or web-based scheduling applications for vaccination appointments; and multiple guidance documents on topics from permitted disclosures of protected health information (PHI) to first responders to restrictions on media access to PHI in facilities to HIPAA and audio-only telehealth. With the end of the federal PHE, the limited waiver will terminate and the notifications of enforcement discretion are likely to terminate, leaving HIPAA covered entities, including health centers, vulnerable to HIPAA complaints, investigations, audits and enforcement actions.
In this webinar, the presenters will provide an overview of the federal PHE-related flexibilities related to HIPAA, describe the post-PHE reality for privacy and security, and provide strategies for ensuring compliance with the HIPAA Rules.
- HIPAA Privacy and Security Officers
- Compliance Officers and Risk Managers
- Medical Leadership and Staff
- Administrative/Operations Leadership and Staff
- Substance Use Disorder Services Leadership and Staff
After this webinar, you will be able to:
- Understand how expiration of the HIPAA-related enforcement discretion notifications is likely to impact your health center, including your health center’s use of certain telehealth vendors
- Determine the timing and scope of your health center’s next HIPAA security risk analysis
- Identify key terms for contracts and business associate agreements with telehealth vendors
