Compliant Email & Text Messaging with Patients and Clients (Webinar)

Compliant Email & Text Messaging with Patients and Clients (Webinar)

Thursday, June 20, 2024 (1:00 PM - 2:00 PM) (EDT)


Maintaining compliance with HIPAA and other relevant laws during electronic communication with patients is crucial to safeguard home care providers from breaches, privacy lawsuits, and other adverse effects. Join Lani M. Dornfeld, Esq., from Brach Eichler LLC, a friend, and supporter of HCAF, as she addresses these issues:

  • What exactly is protected health information?
  • Best practices for communicating with patients via email and text message.
  • The use of encryption.
  • Apart from HIPAA, what other concerns should providers have?
  • The concept of a HIPAA "safe harbor" in relation to cybersecurity best practices.

With the heightened focus on cybersecurity from federal and state regulatory bodies and the national fight against cybercriminals, home care providers can no longer postpone privacy and security compliance due to lack of time or funding. The penalties associated with breaches, including fines, have become increasingly severe, potentially crippling any provider, and potentially putting smaller providers out of business.

Lani will provide information on actions that can be taken to enhance compliance and reduce or eliminate potential regulatory penalties. Please join us!
