Recent healthcare developments are changing how your organization uses protected health information (PHI). New data processing requirements such as 5010 and ICD-10 impact the way systems, processes and people access and manage PHI. Initiatives such as Meaningful Use and Accountable Care Organizations require greater use of health information exchanges (HIE) and electronic health records (EHR). And HITECH includes more stringent security protocols along with increased enforcement of HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules and Breach Notification standards.

As your organization is required to process additional PHI, expectations around how that data is protected will become increasingly more demanding. The HHS Office of Civil Rights (OCR) along with state attorneys general will be much more active in enforcement efforts than in the past. Auditing and fining entities for HIPAA violations will become more frequent.

Ensuring privacy and maintaining security will always be essential mandates for your organization; but you must also focus on promoting the best health outcomes for your patients, increasing operational efficiency, and safeguarding your organization's market strength.

During this webcast, Microsoft and their partner, Washington Publishing Company (WPC), will talk about how you can increase the focus on security and compliance without stopping innovation and business execution at your health plan. By ensuring HITECH compliance without compromising your operational demands, WPC can show health plans how to embrace projects like ICD-10 and payment reform while ensuring industry and cutting edge best practices. As a recognized expert in security and compliance, you won't want to miss what WPC has to say about preparing for 2014.
