    “One-In, Two-Out”

    Will the Trump Administration Reduce HIPAA’s Administrative Burden?


    WEBINAR

    Healthcare entities are concerned about protecting patient privacy and securing health information but are HIPAA’s compliance requirements too much for providers? The 21st Century Cures Act and President Trump’s “one- in / two- out” push on regulations has prompted the Office for Civil Rights interest in understanding, from practitioners, what parts of HIPAA Privacy or Security Rules are creating the most administrative burden. Would you say it is the Accounting of Disclosures requirement, Notice of Privacy Practices, Patient right to request restrictions, or something completely different?

    Join us to hear from an industry expert on where organizations are falling short and interact with the consortium regarding how the HIPAA administrative burden could be reduced.

    Key Objectives

    • Baseline HIPAA Requirements
    • Review top breaches of 2017
    • Discuss how the administrative burden of HIPAA might be reduced

    Addressing Challenges in Continuity of Care 
    A Case Study in Behavioral Health


    Healthcare is broken in large part due to fragmented care coordination, inefficient communication and poor patient adherence. Much as reducing readmissions and unnecessary ED visits are priorities for hospitals, reducing the relapse rate is critically important to addiction treatment centers. In this session, Neil Gaer, CEO of Washburn House, a 52-bed inpatient addiction treatment and 48-bed sober living center in Worcester, will describe how Washburn leverages technology to improve continuity of care — and ultimately outcomes.

    With the Medssenger platform, Washburn House structures treatment, engages patients and smooths each transition as patients incrementally reintegrate. Their patients, members of the digital generation, use the Medssenger app to drive therapy and plan for post-discharge — all of which forms a portfolio made available to the downstream provider(s). Washburn follows up post-discharge with surveys and a daily check-in that monitors patients, increases treatment continuity and offers a lifeline back to Washburn should the patient need more help.

    Join the webinar to learn more about the successes won and the lessons learned in applying technology to ensure no critical opportunity for improving a patient’s health falls through the cracks.
