From the Healthcare Attorney's Desk - Avoid These Landmines

September 11, 2017
1:30pm - 2:00pm
Constitution A

In this session, healthcare attorney Matt Fisher will address some common privacy & security misunderstandings that could lead unsuspecting healthcare providers into a whole lot of trouble. Specifically:

  • As long as I have cybersecurity/general liability/professional liability insurance, I’ll be fully covered in the event of a breach. 
  • Our team can handle our risk analysis internally. We don’t need outside help.
  • Social media and mobile communications aren’t a big concern for us. 
  • Business Associate Agreements are just a form agreement. Our lawyers don’t need to review them and we should always sign one.
  • As long as I’m HIPAA compliant and my vendor is HIPAA “certified”, I’m golden. 

If you’ve ever found yourself uttering or thinking these statements, it’s time to reconsider your position. Matt will explain why such thinking is dangerous, and what attendees can do mitigate potential harm.
