DESCRIPTION

While the health care industry faces constant turmoil, the developments to look at in 2015 for healthcare privacy and security stand out. We have significant possibilities this year of massive new changes in litigation and enforcement, the very real possibility of significant new legislation or regulation that could overhaul some primary elements of the health care privacy universe and rapid growth in risks related to data security and cybersecurity. It will be a critical year for lawyers, privacy officers, compliance officials and, increasingly, senior management to pay close attention to the primary “hot topics” for the year ahead in healthcare privacy and security.

This webinar is designed to review the “top ten” major developments to watch in 2015 for health care privacy and security, focusing on (among other items) the “big data” revolution in healthcare, new litigation theories for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act claims, cyber and data security challenges, new risks for the business associate community and a variety of other key topics.  These issues affect every company in the healthcare industry, anyone that provides services to the health care industry, and all companies and entities that gather, use, disclose or analyze health care information.

Educational Objectives:
• Review the big data revolution may fundamentally restructure the world of healthcare privacy 
• Analyze the biggest risks for healthcare data security
• Explore how patients and others may bring new claims against your company
• Discuss service providers and covered entities can manage new enforcement and audit risks
• Examine the biggest enforcement risks and developments for 2015.
