HIPAA Celebrates 25 Years – A Synopsis of the Law’s Evolution

Rachel V. Rose, JD, MBA, principal with Rachel V. Rose – Attorney at Law, P.L.L.C., Houston, TX presents this timely webinar. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 25 years since HIPAA was signed into law on August 21, 1996! Over the past two and a half decades, there have been a multitude of changes in the healthcare industry and technology. The three items that remain constant are preserving the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of a patient’s protected health information. In this “ode to HIPAA” presented, participants will be given a glimpse into some of the lesser known or emphasized aspects of HIPAA, as well as key parts of its history, recent enforcement actions, and anticipated developments.

This webinar will cover the following objectives:

1. Appreciate that HIPAA has important provisions that are unrelated to the privacy and security of PHI.
2. Understand the trends in HIPAA enforcement and the impact of the May 2021 Executive Order on cybersecurity.
3. Anticipate changes and crucial items to implement, which relate to the 21st Century Cures Act and 42 CFR Part 2.
