Loretta Maddox, Account Executive at Healthcare Compliance Pros will be presenting virtually for the MGMA Operations Conference . Join her April 16th at 1:45 PM EST to discuss Understanding HIPAA in Emergency Situations.


Amid a global pandemic, life as we know it changes. The practice of medicine changes, too. Social distancing makes seeing patients in the office a challenge, so the push toward telehealth options is a logical solution. Allowing certain employees to work remotely is another option to reduce exposure, but both options come with challenges. One of those challenges is HIPAA. The HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR) announced on March 17, 2020, that it would waive potential HIPAA penalties for "good faith use" of telehealth during the nationwide public health emergency due to COVID-19. This session will provide clarification on the Notice provided by the OCR, information regarding remote access and employees working from home, and an explanation of existing permitted disclosures of protected health information (PHI) in emergencies.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Outline what the OCR's "enforcement discretion" for telehealth means and how it will impact the practice of medicine in the current environment
  • Prepare remote workers and the HIPAA requirements for the privacy and security of PHI
  • Separate existing permitted disclosures of PHI for public health and emergencies
