HIPAA and HITECH Enforcement: How to Secure Health Information

HIPAA and HITECH Enforcement: How to Secure Health Information
New HIPAA Security Rule enforcement began in February 2010 under the HITECH Act. Healthcare providers and their business associates that fail to secure protected health information are now subject to new penalties. Register for this webinar to learn:
  • Strategies for protecting your patients and your business;
  • Best-practices from a veteran healthcare/security leader.


After months of discussion, compliance time is here.

Security rules found under HIPAA now enforced by the HITECH Act enable state attorney general's offices to pursue civil charges on behalf of victims. HIPAA violations that result in a data breach are subject to fines of up to $1.5 million per year.

Faced with the looming threat of serious fines, healthcare providers, plan administrators and other business associates that handle private patient health information are seeking ways to become HIPAA compliant.

But where are the greatest vulnerabilities for healthcare organizations?

What must they do to protect their patients - and themselves?

Where can they pick up practical tips?
