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.
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.
In collaboration with HIMSS13 Annual Conference & Expo
Abstract: A convergence of technologies has enabled the creation of amazing medical innovations that can save lives and alleviate suffering. But due to regulatory, technological and cultural hurdles, this digital revolution is lagging in healthcare. This session – a precursor to Dr. Topol’s message as a keynote speaker at HIMSS13 – will address roles consumers and technology will play in the coming democratization of medicine.
Recognize the technologies that are driving the shift toward data-driven, participatory medicine, and how they are changing providers’ reality.
Develop strategic initiatives to begin reorienting your organization toward ‘digitization’ of the patient.
Identify digital and virtual steps you can take today that enhance patient care.
