Description

This webinar will summarize the HIPAA changes that become effective on September, 23, 2013.
There are not huge changes since most of these rules were introduced in the interim final rules previously. However, there are enough small changes that psychologists need to be aware of them and implement them into their practices.

Objectives

  • Learn what the changes are in the HIPAA Final Rules
  • Have your questions answered or find out where to get more information
  • Be prepared to implement changes in your practice and know who else you need to recruit to help (e.g. your attorney, business associates, APA HIPAA Resources)
