Healthcare attorney Jill Girardeau recently gave IT professionals an in-depth look at navigating the increasingly complicated waters of HIPAA compliance. Along with most healthcare providers, health plans, and healthcare clearinghouses, HIPAA also now applies to businesses providing services to providers, plans, and clearinghouses.
In addition to reviewing HIPAA and its updates, Girardeau discussed what elements healthcare companies should include in their agreements with service providers as well as the questions they should ask when sharing personally identifiable information with others.
