In our evolving digital environment, every industry is at risk for data breaches. The health care industry is not immune to data intrusions as more physicians and hospitals adopt electronic health record systems. As the electronic storage and transmission of health care data becomes a standard operating practice, potential health care data breaches are a growing concern for the government, health care providers and health plans, their business associates and practicing health care lawyers.
To offer the audience with effective ways to mitigate the risks of health care data breaches, the Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of key regulators and thought leaders to walk you through the nuts and bolts of investigating and responding to health care data breaches. Panelists will provide best practices based on case studies and offer effective strategies to mitigate risks of heath care data intrusions while complying with health care data laws.
