(Recorded Webinar) Protecting Patient Data in HIEs and Networks
As health information exchanges (HIEs) develop on state, regional and local levels, health centers are presented with multiple opportunities to store, access and share patient health information electronically for purposes of treatment, payment and health care operations. Often health centers are also approached to participate in pilot projects involving the disclosure of patient information to various community partners, state and local governments, foundations and other nonprofits (just to mention a few). Under the federal confidentiality laws and regulations, health centers are responsible for ensuring disclosures of patient information are permitted, appropriate agreements are in place and compliance is monitored.
This webinar will provide details on the most common HIE structures and purposes, as well as examples of other health information sharing projects under consideration by health centers. The webinar will cover HIPAA and 42 CFR Part 2 compliance considerations, including key questions to ask before joining any type of information exchange.
This webinar will cover:
- Common structures for sharing patient information through exchanges and networks
- Patient consent and authorization requirements under HIPAA and Part 2
- Key contract questions and terms to limit your health center’s risk

Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course.
Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
