Thursday, October 13, 2016

Headlines screaming about the mishandling of personal health information have become ubiquitous in the media. Employers handling health records are rightly concerned about their liability for the protection of such data. So where should an anxious employer begin?

This webinar will provide employers with an overview of their legal obligations, focusing significantly on health care providers, covered entities, and business associates under HIPAA, as well as the handling of health information from health insurance, medical leave, or disability, and will cover GINA, the FMLA, and the ADA.

Join this webinar to get real answers to questions like:

  • What obligations do organizations have to secure protected health information (PHI) under HIPAA?
  • What can HIPAA-covered entities and business associates expect from OCR audits and compliance investigations?
  • What other laws must employers consider when dealing with health information?
