With the many new developments in technology, threats to the privacy and security of health information, and stresses on compliance brought about by emergencies and pandemics, healthcare organizations are reviewing their compliance and making sure they have the proper policies, procedures, and forms in place. HIPAA Security Officers have been renewing their compliance activities and reviewing their documentation to make sure they can meet the challenges of the rules and avoid breaches and penalties for compliance violations as they survive the new stresses and demands on information systems managers and security managers across the country. Given the new realities of severe threats including ransomware and threats to patient safety, coupled with nationwide health emergencies and new technologies for communications, the work of safely meeting rules and legitimate healthcare needs can be overwhelming.

  • What’s in the Security and Breach Notification regulations and what has changed?
  • What are the new threats to the security of Protected Health Information?
  • What are the HIPAA Security Safeguards and how do they work, particularly in emergencies when rules are relaxed?
