Providers looking to learn more about changes to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) are invited to attend a LeadingAge webinar at 2 p.m. EDT on Sept. 18. Continuing education credit will be available.

The January ruling affects the Privacy Rule, Security Rule, breach notification requirements and affiliated data security provisions under the Health Information Technology Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009. It has also affected the definition of “business associates” and providers' marketing activities.

Law experts will teach participants about the revisions' effect on their HIPAA practices, as well as how to identify a personal health information (PHI) breach and provide the required notifications. The presenters also will discuss the evaluation and preparation of an organization for an audit under the DHHS Office of Civil Rights' HIPAA audit program.

The speakers include: Brian Kase and Jacqueline Anderson, both of Rolf Goffman Martin Lang LLP, and Jennifer Hilliard, public policy attorney at LeadingAge.
