Healthcare Council invites members to participate in the program Employees & Patients: Legal, Security, and Privacy Considerations from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on April 21, 2021. This is the second in the series of virtual Cyber Security programs offered by Healthcare Council in partnership with the firm Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr. The virtual program is offered at no cost to Healthcare Council members.
COVID-19 has had a large impact on employees, patients, and residents of hospitals, long-term care organizations, and other providers. These changes in operations include a significant increase in employees telecommuting and an increase in the use of telehealth by patients and physicians. These changes will continue to impact health care providers and patients well into the future.
The expert panel of speakers will address several topics including the government’s compliance expectations, how cyber security and privacy intersect, and employee and patient education on good cyber practices. Speakers will also address topics related to employees such as remote work site expectations and secure file transfers. Speakers will also address topics related to patients such as the use of email to send test results to patients and other COVID adaptations.
The expert panel includes Joe Valenti, partner with the firm Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr, David Nasca, counsel in Highmark Health’s Data, Ethics, Policy and Privacy Department, Nate Smith, director of Governance, Risk and Compliance Technology within Highmark Health’s Risk Operations; and Mark Volovic, vice president for Indiana Regional Medical Center (IRMC) and chief information officer of IRMC and Punxsutawney Area Hospital.
There is no cost to attend the program, however registration is required. To register, contact Toni Bresnahan at email@example.com.
