Health Information Privacy and Security
Our Knowledge in Health Information Privacy and Security
The Health Information Privacy and Security Section counsels clients on all aspects of health information privacy and security. We develop compliance policies, training programs, and materials personalized to the privacy and security practices of a variety of entities and organizations, including health care providers, hospitals, health plans, integrated delivery systems, professional membership organizations, and municipalities with first responders and health care components, as well as contractors that serve the health care industry. We provide broad guidance regarding the use, disclosure, retention, exchange, de-identification, and destruction of health information. Our team also counsels clients on HIPAA, information systems risk management, investigation, corrective action, and breach assessment and notification.
The Health Information Privacy and Security Section is well versed on additional federal and state privacy and confidentiality laws that shape and complicate health information compliance issues and regularly advises clients on state law preemption issues.
Understanding HIPAA privacy and security regulations also requires knowledge of technology issues. In conjunction with the Health Information Privacy and Security Section, the firm’s Information Technology Section works with clients to handle and effectively implement policies and procedures, establishing “best practices” for maintaining the privacy and security of health information.
