Downtown Dinner CLE - The Ticking Time Bomb: Your Non-Healthcare Organization's HIPAA Liability


Sponsored By:

Akerman LLP, 71 South Wacker Drive, 47th Floor, Chicago, IL.  (312) 634-5700


Join us for an interactive panel discussion on how non-healthcare organizations may risk significant fines and penalties for violations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, and its implementing regulations (HIPAA). Non-healthcare organizations that engage in certain activities are often unaware that they are acting as business associates and that they are subject to HIPAA's onerous requirements. Discussion topics will include:
•    How to identify business associates and understand their legal responsibilities as well as the consequences of failing to satisfy them
•    How to develop best practices for HIPAA compliance
•    How to anticipate and remediate a data breach
