Employer's HIPAA Privacy and Security Responsibilities

Workshop Description/Agenda

Learning Objectives
Learning Objectives * You will be able to define protected health information. * You will be able to describe the impact of HIPAA on employer requests for medical information. * You will be able to explain the steps employers must take to protect medical plan information. * You will be able to identify data that is subject to HIPAAs security provisions.

Protect your company by making sure you are up to date with HIPAAs latest mandates for privacy and security laws in the workplace. In the COVID19 era, employers need medical information to protect the health of their employees, but fear that the HIPAA privacy rule may limit their ability to acquire and use such information. This topic will explain why HIPAA need not stand in the way of employer access to the information they need to make informed decisions about operating their businesses. It will describe the measures employers should implement to safeguard HIIPAAprotected information while still having access to the information needed to safeguard employee health. There will also be a discussion of other medical privacy laws that employers must be aware of.
