Compliance programming for federal and state regulations is a critical health care industry enterprise across the delivery system spectrum--from hospitals to Medicare Advantage plans to Federally Qualified Health Centers. Because the stakes are so high for the health care sector, they often seek out subcontractors and partners that can deliver on compliance expectations and help them mitigate compliance risks. Community-based organizations (CBOs) interested in creating sustainable relationships with the health care industry will need to strengthen their compliance program strategies. This imperative is especially true regarding compliance administration around patient privacy, data sharing, and information technology regulations. The Heath Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) constitute the foundational legislation governing compliance in these critical areas. Understanding these laws is crucial to better positioning your organization for integrated care success.

This webinar will provide participants with a high level overview of these two privacy, security and transaction standards, detail the distinctions in the roles/responsibilities of Covered Entities vs. Business Associates, and offer recommendations for evaluating your organization's related compliance programs.
