HIPAA regulations have significantly changed during the COVID-19 pandemic. They’ve loosened restrictions on when and how you can disclose a patient’s private health information and waived certain penalties for noncompliance. There are also new rules for HIPAA-covered entities and business associates.
So, if you’re confused about exactly what those rules are, you’re not alone.

During her upcoming online training session on Tuesday, April 14th at 1pm ET, you’ll receive a step-by-step breakdown of HIPAA changes and what you need to do to comply. Gina will clearly explain—in plain-English—exactly how you can compliantly communicate with patients, family members, and other individuals.
