Patient privacy is an essential aspect of all forms of healthcare delivery. The federal government has established regulatory requirements and issued several versions of guidance to assist healthcare provider organizations in protecting patients’ sensitive information. Recently, the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) and the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) proposed privacy rule amendments that have the potential to impact privacy processes across the industry.
In the webinar, “Proposed Amendments to Privacy Rules – Important Aspects and Future Considerations,” PYA Senior Manager Susan Thomas discussed the rationale for the proposed updates to the privacy rules, important aspects of each update, and what organizations need to consider. Specifically, Susan addressed these points:
- HIPAA Privacy Rule review
- Why now?
- The 2020 proposed OCR rule updates, 2023 proposed ONC rule updates, and 2023 proposed OCR rule updates
- Future privacy considerations
The one-hour complimentary webinar took place on May 24, 2023.
This webinar is part of PYA’s twice-monthly “Healthcare Regulatory Roundup” series in which experts from across the firm provide practical insights on the latest regulatory developments.
