This program is designed for attorneys who are new to representing clients in the healthcare space or only occasionally represent such clients. This program will also benefit attorneys who encounter HIPAA issues as opposing counsel to understand how HIPAA impacts matters. The faculty will introduce the basic concepts of HIPAA privacy, security and breach notification rules, alert attorneys as to key issues, and explain how protected health information might have a bearing on their everyday practices (such policies and procedures of how to handle files). The program will provide a solid basis for attorneys to advise clients on HIPAA requirements and avoid issues themselves.
