ALEXANDRIA VA, USA -- HIT/HIPAA UPDATE NEWS SERVICE™ -- DECEMBER 4, 2017: Melamedia's 14th Annual Year-End Review of Medical Privacy & Security Enforcement takes a deep dive into the enforcement of health data privacy and security in the first year of the Trump Administration.

OCR continued to issue resolution agreements with Covered Entities and Business Associates in 2017. But there are questions over whether those efforts were simply the result of finishing up work started in the Obama Administration. Does the first year of the Trump Administration represent the "new normal" in HIPAA and HITECH enforcement?

The webinar also will examine how other regulators, such as the FTC and FDA and the states are affecting HIPAA compliance.

This annual webinar is a "must" for healthcare compliance officers, both new to and well-versed in HIPAA/HITECH as well as contractors and vendors seeking to do business with healthcare providers and insurers.


Adam Greene, a nationally-recognized authority on HIPAA and the HITECH Act, primarily advises healthcare systems and technology companies on compliance with the HIPAA privacy, security, and breach notification requirements. Adam is a former regulator at OCR, where he played a key role in administering and enforcing the HIPAA rules. At HHS, Adam was responsible for determining how HIPAA rules apply to new and emerging health information technologies and he was instrumental in the development of the current enforcement process. Adam also serves as the chair of the HIMSS Cloud Security Workgroup.
