Medical Records Law Seminar on September 23, 2010

On September 23, 2010, I will be speaking at a seminar on Medical Records Law in Altoona, PA. Specifically, I will be speaking on:

HIPAA
  • What Is It?
  • Prohibitions on Use and Disclosure
  • Patient Rights
  • Business Associates
  • Preemption and Exceptions
  • What's Not Covered Mental Health, HIV, Others?
  • Everyday Application
    • Amendment and Correction of Records
    • Requests From Attorneys
    • Requests From Workers' Compensation Carriers
    • Requests From Employers
    • Law Enforcement Requests
    • Disclosures Without Authorization

My McQuaide Blasko colleague, and member of the Health Law and Litigation practice groups, Jon Stepanian, will also be speaking. Jon recently launched a health law and policy blog, Defense of Medicine, featuring contributions from some other McQuaide Blasko Health Law and Litigation folks.

I'll steal reuse some language from his announcement of this event:
This will be a great event to network with other professionals in the area and an opportunity to learn a few points related to developments in the law affecting medical records. You can learn more about the seminar here, including the other faculty members and agenda. CLE credit is available for attorneys and other credits are available through the American Health Information Management Association, the Institute of Certified Records Managers, the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards, and other professional associations as noted on the seminar information page.
We hope to see you there!
