How to Protect Yourself and your patients during the Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has put a tremendous stress on the healthcare system and has reduced its ability to monitor and protect patient data. Hospital compliance teams already struggle to protect patient data from exposure, and now bad actors are looking to take advantage of any weaknesses they can find in an already stressed healthcare system. It is as critical as ever to have the capacity to protect the privacy of every hospitalized patient, especially those who are being treated for COVID-19. Despite the current exceptions to some HIPAA regulations, there are still risks to the entire organization that could result in major HIPAA violations, subject to penalties and fines.In this session, participants will learn about:

  • How HIPAA regulations remain in force, although less rigorously enforced during the pandemic.
  • The evolving health data breach landscape and its effect on the healthcare industry.
  • Best practices every healthcare organization can use to better protect patient privacy, especially for patients with COVID-19.
