On September 21, 2011, several members of Baker Hostetler's Healthcare Industry, Privacy, Security and Social Media and Intellectual Property Teams hosted a webinar on "Cloud Computing in Healthcare: HIPAA, HITECH and Contracting Considerations."
This webinar focused on the main components of a cloud computing platform and its potential ramifications or threats to healthcare providers, health plans and business associates in accordance with HIPAA and the HITECH Act.
This program also discussed how cloud computing directly relates to a company's electronic health records' meaningful use policies and goals. Key discussions focused on the contracting, negotiation and liability aspects of a cloud computing platform.
Baker Hostetler attorneys Peter Brown, John Mulhollan and Lynn Sessions led the session.
This program was approved for 1 CLE Ethics Credit in California, New York, Texas and is pending in Florida.
