Pepper Hamilton partner Sharon R. Klein will participate in the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC)'s free webinar, "Dispelling the Myth that Health Care Regulatory Compliance Is Inherently Addressed within Existing Controls.” Discussions will include the importance of safeguarding PHI and how financial organizations can mitigate the risk of PHI disclosure.
Wednesday, June 27
1:30-3:00 p.m. EDT
Through a panel discussion, the webinar will examine the current legislative regulations of HIPAA, ARRA, HITECH and other financial institution compliance mandates, as well as the potential ramifications of unlawful PHI disclosures. In addition, panelists will discuss clarifications on requirements for business associates and covered entities and help define an organization’s risk tolerance. An open forum will follow the panel discussion to enable attendees to submit questions specific to their own organizations.
