MANASQUAN, N.J. —  May 30, 2007: With stolen laptop computers and misplaced CDs containing confidential patient information and the risks and reliability of contracting with third-party vendors, healthcare providers and payors are becoming increasingly susceptible to data security breaches.   Although HIPAA security regulations provide a guideline concerning data safeguards, there hasn’t been enough enforcement to ensure that the proper protections are in place.

Recent incidents at healthcare organizations have added fuel to the fire surrounding healthcare data security.   And awareness of healthcare privacy and security issues has only increased as the rise in identity theft has become a major concern for consumers.   

News of healthcare security breaches has dominated the headlines, with many health care organizations experiencing data breaches costing millions of dollars in recovery and remediation fees.  Not only can data breaches have significant financial and legal ramifications, they may even have more of an impact on public image leading to privacy-related PR nightmares.

Join Health Resources Publishing to hear perspectives from legal, healthcare compliance consulting and medical record experts in Beyond HIPAA: Today's Critical Strategies in Healthcare Privacy and Data Security,” a special 90-minute audio conference scheduled for Wednesday, June 20, 2006 at 1:30 PM Eastern time. The speakers will share the recent legal developments surrounding data security, their best practices and recommendations for good privacy and security.
