ILTA Webinar: Law Firm Compliance with HIPAA "Minimum Necessary" Standard

Frightened by the new HIPAA compliance requirements now in effect? ILTA is hosting the third in a series of HIPAA-related events for law firms, set for Halloween (Thursday, October 31st at 9am PDT / 12pm EDT) --

Complying with the Minimum Necessary Standard of HIPAA
The minimum necessary standard, a key protection of the HIPAA Privacy Rule, mandates that protected health information should be used or disclosed only to satisfy a particular purpose or carry out a particular function.
 
Complying with the minimum necessary standard poses particular challenges to law firms, often forcing them to modify practices for collecting client information and securing it throughout the matter life cycle.
 
This presentation explains why the minimum necessary standard is important and how it impacts common law firm operations. Suggested processes, procedures and technologies to satisfy compliance obligations will be provided.

Speakers:
  • Kathryn Hume is a member of Intapp's Risk Practice Group and focuses on law firm information security, data governance and HIPAA compliance. She analyzes how emerging technologies are influencing and being affected by evolving standards of professional responsibility and care, including the new HIPAA rules.
  • Brian Donato, Chief Information Officer at Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP, has worked in information technology for over 27 years. Brian serves on ILTA's Risk and Records Management Peer Group Steering Committee, as well as the LegalSEC Steering Committee. He is also a Task Force leader for the Law Firm Information Governance Symposium work group. Brian is a frequent author and speaker on the use of mobile devices, security and information governance issues.
