    HIPAA requires that covered entities treat healthcare information with specific levels of care, limiting the uses and disclosures of that information to only identified categories, and requiring that data security safeguards be in place to protect the privacy and confidentiality of that information. One of the categories with specific rules involves the use and disclosure of health information in litigation.

    In this program, our expert panel will:

    • Discuss situations under which a litigating attorney must enter into business associate agreement with the client—while addressing the ethical issues associated with entering into such agreements—and situations under which an attorney should avoid such an agreement

    • Explore the extent to which complaints, motions, and other pleadings can contain protected healthcare information, and whether or not the “minimum necessary” standard applies to information contained in such pleadings

    • Offer an analysis of when a party to litigation should request a qualified protective order in the proceeding

    • Consider the issues arising when an attorney wishes to hire an outside expert witness to review medical records, or conduct other diligence associated with healthcare information

    • Discuss the latest case developments addressing the application of the HIPAA rules to litigation matters

    • Consider the interaction of state laws with HIPAA requirements in litigation, as well as discuss issues that arise in working with parties from more than one country
