Event Description

Overview: The global Internet of Things and the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules allow Protected Health Information (PHI) created by Covered Entities in the United States to be transmitted and stored outside the United States - and outside the reach of U.S. government regulators. Risks for Covered Entities, patients and Business Associates may lurk anywhere in a world where identity theft is rampant and medical identity is the Golden Egg for identity thieves. The U. S. Department of Health and Human Services Inspector General in a widely cited review of State Medicaid outsourcing to foreign vendors highlighted the vulnerabilities in 2014. For example, Medicaid agencies or domestic contractors who send PHI offshore may have limited means of enforcing Business Associate Agreements (BAAs) intended to safeguard PHI. Yet little has been done to publicize, let alone address the problems.

Why should you Attend: Covered Entities and Business Associates rely on the Internet to transmit, store and backup PHI.

    Do you know where your PHI is?
    Do you have a Business Associate or does your Business Associate have a Subcontractor overseas that creates, receives, maintains or transmits your PHI?
    What if if there is a data breach involving an offshore vendor?
    What would you do?
    Are you protected?

Attend this webinar to learn about:
1. HIPAA compliance issues and Off-Shore Business Associates
2. Due Diligence
3. Agency and Off-Shore Business Associates
4. Steps to address risks posed by transmitting and storing PHI outside the United States.

Areas Covered in the Session:

    Explain the Covered Entity - Business Associate - Subcontractor Business Associate chain of trust, responsibility and inter-linked liability
    Review the limits of U.S. government regulation of Off-Shore Business Associates
    Review Due Diligence - the benefits and consequences of controlling Business Associates
    Review provisions of the BAA that may reduce risk and improve opportunities for private remedies


Who Will Benefit:

    Health Care Providers
    Business Associates
    HIPAA Compliance Officials
    Risk Manager - Compliance Manager
    Information Systems Manager
    Contract Managers
    Legal Counsel

Establishing the Mentor-Mentee Relationship is Crucial for Organizations
