Part 1: Thursday, November 1, 2012 - Available On Demand

Time Session
1PM-2PM CT Striking a Balance between Protecting and Exchanging Protected Health Information
  Abstract: For years, both the public and private sectors have emphasized the need to secure patients’ protected health information (PHI). Newer developments, such as Stage 2 Meaningful Use, call for eligible hospitals and professionals to implement appropriate, secure sharing of PHI. This webinar will explain how healthcare organizations can ensure security of patients’ health information and create the ability to appropriately share PHI.

Learning Objectives:
  • Gain a clearer understanding of changing compliance requirements, and the inherent tension between securing and sharing patient information.
  • Develop strategies for meeting PHI-related directives while avoiding regulatory pitfalls.
  • Learn about proactive measures you can implement to protect patients and your organization while simultaneously increasing communication and data sharing with outside parties.
