The series of co-sponsored webinars was announced by Leon Rodriguez, Director of the Office for Civil Rights, Department of Health and Human Services, during his keynote session, “Privacy & Security Post-Omnibus: Implications and Compliance Strategies.”

The 90-minute WEDI/OCR virtual sessions will explore compliance with various aspects of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy and Security Rules, as well as the HITECH Breach Notification Rule.

Presentations will cover a variety of current topics including:

• Individual Rights
