If you are a healthcare start-up, consultant, service provider, or may come in contact with patient data, then you are a Business Associate and HIPAA applies to you. Get the low down on the new HIPAA rules from HIPAA expert Robert A. Polisky.
Robert A. Polisky, principal of the Law Offices of Robert A. Polisky, is a healthcare attorney based in Los Angeles. Robert represents healthcare providers and companies, including health IT companies, in healthcare transactions, healthcare regulatory (including HIPAA, Medicare, and fraud and abuse), and general business law. Robert opened his law firm last April after spending over 8 years in-house at Alliance HealthCare Services and, for several years before that, working at healthcare law firms, clerking for a federal judge, and interning at the U.S. Department of Justice.
On March 11, 2013, Robert will present “The Impact of the 2013 HIPAA Final Rule on Health IT Companies”. The program will cover the applicability of the new HIPAA final rule to health IT companies, including direct criminal and civil liability and new obligations. The attached Health Law Alert written by Robert provides a good overview of the 2013 HIPAA Final Rule. I encourage you to read this ahead of Robert’s presentation because he will take an overall high-level approach during his presentation, honing in on key areas applicable to health IT companies.
The schedule of the March 11th program will be:
- 7pm-7:30pm: networking
- 7:30pm-8:30pm: presentation, including Q&A
- 8:30pm-9pm: networking
