Moving Beyond Basics: A Bootcamp For Hospital Lawyers & Advisors, Part VII

Time: 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern (90 minutes)
Session Format: Live Webinar

Discussion Topic: Key Tips for Overcoming HIPAA Hurdles -- An Inside and Outside Perspective 

Hospitals face HIPAA Privacy and Security issues on a daily basis.  From cyberattacks to snooping employees, HIPAA hurdles can be challenging to overcome – to say the least.  In this webinar, we will take privacy and security scenarios that hospitals face each day and discuss how to address the privacy and security issues head on from the perspective of a hospital compliance officer, outside counsel, and a consultant.  Key topics will include: 

  • Cybersecurity awareness and proactive preparation;
  • Breach/Incident Response;
  • Business Associate relationships and Vetting your Vendors on the front end;
  • Risk Analysis – Your documentation vs. OCR’s expectations – how to bridge the gap between the two;
  • Innovation and HIPAA – how the two can coexist; and 
  • Convincing your boss(es) to invest in privacy and security – key tips for helping executives see privacy and security as a business issue.

Level of Difficulty: Intermediate

Intermediate-level programs generally offer focused discussions regarding common legal issues pertaining to the program topic. Intermediate programs include legal updates and changes in the law. Speakers will assume the audience has a working knowledge of this specialty of health law, and there will be limited review of the fundamentals. This program is designed to provide a targeted, comprehensive analysis of the subject matter for those practicing law in this specialty for three to seven years and/or those whose practice is periodically focused in the covered subject area.

Live Webinars

Live webinars are eligible for Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit. Please refer to the Distance Learning CLE State Chart for details regarding specific state guidelines.

  • For attorneys licensed in states in which live distance learning programs are approved and AHLA possesses approved provider/sponsor status: AHLA webinars are pre-approved for CLE credit. Certificates of completion are made available immediately following the webinar upon completion of the course evaluation. Those states are: Indiana, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
  • For attorneys licensed in states in which live distance learning programs are approved and AHLA does not possess approved provider/sponsor status: participants are able to apply directly to their state accrediting body for approval for and accreditation of AHLA-sponsored webinars. The application and agenda are available for download during the live event and any time thereafter; certificates of completion are made available immediately following the webinar upon completion of the course evaluation.
  • In states in which live distance learning programs are not approved, it is still possible to obtain CLE credit by applying directly to the state's accrediting body for “self-study" credit where applicable.

Other, Non-CLE Credits

AHLA webinars are only presumptively approved for CLE credits unless otherwise stated. To obtain other credit types (Continuing Professional Education, Compliance Certification Board, Nursing Home Administrator, etc.) participants may apply directly their desired licensing body, but approval is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of said licensing body and subject to its rules and regulations.

For additional information about Distance Learning-related credits, please email the Practice Groups staff at pgs@healthlawyers.org.
