Understanding OCR HIPAA Enforcement Waivers for Telehealth Expansion During COVID-19

Overview


In response to the global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, US state and federal government agencies are promoting expanded use of telehealth. Prior to and following president Trump’s declaration of a national emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the US Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights (OCR) issued bulletins and guidance to help ensure that HIPAA privacy and security requirements do not inappropriately constrain the provision of telehealth and other services during the pandemic. Please join us for a discussion of:

  • The OCR waivers, bulletins and guidance
  • Privacy and security compliance insights and remaining questions
  • Provider operational tips and patient considerations
  • Opportunities for additional OCR guidance.
