HIPAA Privacy and Security Compliance
We have been following, interpreting and applying the Privacy and Security Standards promulgated under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). Our principal attorney has extensive experience as the Privacy Official for a large enterprise. We also have considerable experience with state laws protecting the confidentiality of health information and prescription data and more recently, with the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), which represents the most significant expansion of HIPAA since its inception.
We can develop or review your privacy policies, notices, forms and training. Oftentimes, organizations – particularly in the health and human services space, have a desire to share information. Navigating the privacy laws that govern the individually identifiable health information held by the highly regulated health and human services sector requires a creative process that our attorneys are nationally recognized for. We ca draft Contracts, Data Sharing Agreements and Memorandums of Understanding focused on treatment of data and information shared between organizations.
Whether advising on the formulation of data breach response policies or in the application of the policy after an information security incident, Page Legal has the experience to rapidly address all of the major issues presented by a data breach including the assessment of the extent and nature of the breach, the requisite notifications, development of appropriate documentation, crisis communication management and the preparation for potential litigation.
