MANASQUAN, NJ -- According to every industry survey, HIPAA remains the single most pressing challenge facing healthcare providers, payors, and their vendors.
To help vendors, health and managed care organizations address these challenges, "HIPAA For Healthcare Vendors," an audio conference sponsored by HIPAA Bulletin for Management, is scheduled for Thursday, September 12, 2002 at 1:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
This special audio conference will provide companies that sell products and services to health and managed care organizations with details and insight into HIPAA from the vendor perspectives.
Suppliers, staff, and their products and services need to be HIPAA ready. Only covered entities must be HIPAA compliant by the federal deadlines. But, services or solutions must be able to help the healthcare client covered entity become HIPAA compliant.
Expert speakers Jonathan Bogen, founder and CEO of HealthCIO, and Steven Fox, partner at Pepper Hamilton LLP, will provide the conference participants with information on:
- - Vendor awareness of legal requirements;
- - Identifying vendors' role in compliance;
- - How vendors' top management can communicate the importance of HIPAA with their staff;
- - How vendors must meet the needs of covered entity clients understanding what procedures need to be met; and
- - HIPAA policies and procedures for vendors.
Who should participate: CEO's, operations executives, vendor HIPAA task force members, team leaders, planners, business development, product managers, sales executives and marketers, knowledge managers and strategic and implementor consultants, laboratories, pharmaceutical companies, clearinghouses, physician practice management company executives, medical device manufacturers, and healthcare technology companies.
By participating in this program, the participant can enjoy significant savings -- No travel time or hassle; no hotel expenses. The registration fee also covers the entire organization's site.
The program will be approximately 90 minutes including a 30 minute Question-and-Answer period.
Cost: $189 for the "Early Bird" sign-ups before September 6 ($239 regular price).
