Since HIPAA and its related Privacy and Security Rules went into effect for health care providers, there have been a number of new laws and regulations passed that impact the policy, procedures and overall privacy and security approach for many health care organizations. The Red Flag Rules (which go into effect for the health care sector this May of 2009), the New Jersey Identity Theft Prevention Act and its most recently promulgated regulations, as well as the brand new federal HITECH Act are among those that must be considered, addressed and incorporated into a health care organization’s current approach, strategy, policies and procedures.

Join me on April 14, 2009 at the New Jersey Hospital Association in Princeton, New Jersey for a 1-day educational workshop where I will walk through the requirements of these new laws, their impact to New Jersey health care organizations, and what steps can be taken to assure compliance.  For more information on how to register, visit the NJHA’s website or click here for a link to the Registration Form.
