    De-Identification of PHI under HIPAA - Follow the Guidance to Avoid Penalties

    Overview: Today health information needs to be shared more than ever, but how can that be done most easily within the limits of HIPAA? One way is to de-identify the information. Once PHI has been de-identified, it is no longer protected under HIPAA and may be shared freely without limitation. The problem is that it is not easy to truly de-identify information and if it is not done correctly, the sharing of the information may be considered a breach that requires reporting to HHS and the potential for penalties and corrective action plans.

    Healthcare and Automation - Not Smarter Machines: Smarter Man-Machine Processes

Why you should Attend: There are many examples of successful EMR, HIE, and other automation implementations within American healthcare. There are also many examples of projects not going according to plan, with the attendant cost-overruns and missed schedule dates. Equally important is that even the dates that are met often don't deliver as promised.
