As HIPAA’s twenty-fifth anniversary approaches, the need to protect patient information remains an important focus of the Department of Health and Human Services, compliance professionals, and class action lawyers alike. The purpose of this presentation is to provide an overview of HIPAA, the HITECH Act and 42 CFR Part 2 in the context of telehealth and telecommuting; relay the Office for Civil Rights’ 2020 enforcement action trends; and highlight some recent cases. The presentation ends with an enterprise risk management approach to compliance.
