Overview:

The current COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for health care providers and their business associates.  This public health emergency has changed the way health care providers operate and deliver health care, including the increasing reliance on telehealth. Privacy officers for covered entities and their business associates need to keep abreast of notices and guidances issued by Department of Health and Human Services regarding compliance with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) during this public health emergency.

With the constantly evolving regulatory developments and changes in health care delivery emerging in this area, potential risks and challenges are expected to rise alongside other existing issues, making compliance even more important.

In this LIVE Webcast, privacy law experts Scott Pink (O’Melveny & Myers LLP) and Christine Moundas (Ropes & Gray LLP) will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the recent trends in the HIPAA Privacy Rule in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Speakers will present significant recent regulatory developments and compliance issues posed by this crisis.  They will also provide best practices to stay compliant.
