Most professionals involved in the field of healthcare know the basics of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). However, there are exceptions in case of criminal or civil investigations, and it is important that you are familiar with them.

During this webinar, our expert speaker Mr. Mark R Brengelman will take you through the subject of HIPAA privacy exceptions, explaining various concepts in detail and providing useful information. So in case a health care practitioner finds himself/herself facing a demand for information from the police, they will be fully aware of what they can and cannot divulge, what they must document, and whether or not they will need to notify the patient.

Topics discussed include: HIPAA privacy basics, exceptions to HIPAA privacy with patient consent, exceptions to HIPAA privacy for law enforcement purposes (civil and criminal matters), how exceptions are applied by agencies, how to comply with a request for protected health information in various situations, what you must document as a permitted disclosure, and pitfalls of non-compliance.
