HIPAA Security and Privacy Conference

Date: 18 September-18 September 2003
Location: John Hancock Conference Center, Boston, MA, USA
Organizer: Data Connectors

Healthcare institutions face a wide array of security issues. To address security concerns, the United States Congress passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). HIPAA will affect virtually every physician practice and insurance payer in the country. The regulation closely defines the security of patient information to ensure the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability among physicians, patients and health plans.

As Healthcare Organizations strive to leverage the Internet, they need to deploy a security architecture to meet government regulation and ensure the trust of patients. Physicians, hospitals, insurance providers will need to determine what changes should be made in their offices to comply with these regulations.

The first step of compliance is understanding the regulations, speaking to attorneys who understand the healthcare industry and to get educated in HIPAA and compliance in general.

Don't miss the opportunity to come and share a day with industry leading security experts who will present and discuss key elements of HIPAA. They will share their knowledge to help create a blue print for establishing a Healthcare Information Security program.

Conference objectives:

- Describing the content and scope of HIPAA regulations
- Up-to-date information on the final HIPAA regulations
- Defining Information Security programs that fully comply with HIPAA
- Recognize how regulations relate to day-to-day practice activities
- Monitor and enforce policy compliance
- Consequences of not complying with regulations
- What to do first: implementing security and privacy measures
- Begin preparing for implementation
