ABOUT THE WEBINAR: A widespread infectious disease outbreak like COVID-19 stresses the health care system. HIPAA Rules regarding protected health information (PHI) are not suspended, but key provisions in the Privacy Rule manage the permitted and required uses and disclosures of PHI. With a Presidential Declaration of a Public Health Emergency, the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has temporarily waived some HIPAA requirements. The HIPAA Privacy Rule and Office for Civil Rights guidance clearly explain how Covered Entities and their Business Associates may collaborate and communicate with other Covered Entities and Public Health Authorities during the COVID-19 outbreak, and how to communicate with family, friends and others involved in the patient’s care. This webinar will explain how Covered Entities and Business Associates can continue to serve their patients and wider communities with patient care, and protect themselves from HIPAA violations.
