HIPAA for New (and experienced) IT Staff
Torie Jones, the Penn Medicine Privacy Officer from the Office of Audit, Compliance and Privacy, will provide an overview of HIPAA and what you need to know as IT staff at the University of Pennsylvania. Torie has worked extensively on HIPAA with Penn Medicine and also with University entities affected by HIPAA. Recently HIPAA requirements – both privacy and security – have been extended to Business Associates via the Health Information Technology Economic Clinical Health Act (HITECH). Faculty and staff at your school or center may be engaged to perform services that would qualify their activities as Business Associate activities which means that you should become informed about HIPAA and HITECH. This is an excellent opportunity to find out more.
