Healthcare 2020 - Clear Visions and Strategic Directions for the Decade

With pressing operational priorities, it’s often difficult for healthcare executives to step back to gain a broader perspective on major industry issues.  This webinar series features leading healthcare experts who will discuss far-reaching technology and regulatory trends, their likely impacts on care delivery, and effective strategies for dealing with them.

Overall Learning Objectives:

  • Understand technology and regulatory trends that are fundamentally changing the healthcare landscape.

  • Identify strategies that will position your organization to capitalize on these changes.

  • Develop practical actions you can take today to align your organization for maximum effectiveness.

Striking a Balance between Protecting and Exchanging Protected Health Information

For years, both the public and private sectors have emphasized the need to secure patients’ protected health information (PHI). Newer developments, such as Stage 2 Meaningful Use, call for eligible hospitals and professionals to implement appropriate, secure sharing of PHI. This webinar will explain how healthcare organizations can ensure security of patients’ health information and create the ability to appropriately share PHI.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain a clearer understanding of changing compliance requirements, and the inherent tension between securing and sharing patient information.
  • Develop strategies for meeting PHI-related directives while avoiding regulatory pitfalls.
  • Learn about proactive measures you can implement to protect patients and your organization while simultaneously increasing communication and data sharing with outside parties.
