This panel will discuss certain HIPAA "hot topics" including OCR's Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) designed to strengthen HIPAA Privacy Rule protections by prohibiting the use or disclosure of protected health information to identify, investigate, prosecute, or sue patients, providers and others involved in the provision of legal reproductive health care. The panel will also discuss ONC's NPRM on proposals to implement certain provisions of the 21st Century Cures Act and make several enhancements to the ONC Health IT Certification Program.
