Online Tech Hosts Webinar on Final HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules

ANN ARBOR, Mich. --(Business Wire)--

Online Tech is hosting an educational webinar on the new final HIPAA omnibus rule, No More Excuses: HHS Releases Tough Final HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules Thursday, January 31 at 2 P.M. ET. The webinar will discuss how the latest HIPAA modifications affect the healthcare industry and healthcare vendors.

Dickinson Wright's Brian Balow will lead the No More Excuses webinar with April Sage, Director of Healthcare Vertical for Online Tech. On January 17, 2013, the Department of Health and Human Services released its long-anticipated modifications to the Privacy, Security, Enforcement, and Breach Notification Rules under HIPAA/HITECH.

These modifications leave no doubt that covered entities, business associates, and their subcontractors must understand the application of these Rules to their operations, and must take steps to ensure compliance with these Rules in order to avoid liability.

Balow concentrates his practice in the areas of information technology, healthcare law, and intellectual property, and has spoken and written extensivey on healthcare IT and telemedicine issues (including HIPAA/HITECH). In 2012, Brian presented on social media in healthcare issues at HIMSS12 in Las Vegas, and BYOD issues at the HIMSS mHealth Summit in Washington, DC.
