As a U.S. provider, you may think that the European Union’s General Data Protection Rule (GDPR) is not applicable to your patient records, and that only HIPAA and local state rules apply. However, there are scenarios where GDPR’s standards apply to you in this country. The rule also differs substantially from HIPAA in several respects, which may require different handling of records subject to GDPR. Failure to comply with GDPR carries more serious penalties than HIPAA, and a violator must deal with regulators of European agencies that are often unwilling to settle the matter informally.
Learn how to comply with EU’s GDPR in this informative audio conference by industry expert Wayne J. Miller. Miller will discuss examples where American providers are subject to GDPR, such as when a tourist sees a U.S. doctor, or when clinical trials are run for a foreign drug company. He will highlight the specific ways in which GDPR differs from HIPAA when recording confidentiality and security matters, and what additional steps are necessary to comply. Miller will also present an overview of the regulators that enforce GDPR, and the penalties they can impose. Lastly, he will show you how to update existing forms and procedures to be GDPR compliant.
After attending this session, you will know exactly how GDPR applies to you. You will know the difference between GDPR and HIPAA, and situations where HIPAA compliance will not be enough. You will also know which agencies enforce GDPR against providers, and how they do it. Plus, you will know the penalties for violating the new rule.
The presentation will cover the following topics:
