ComplianceOnline

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) protecting the privacy of information of residents of the European Union went into effect on May 25, 2018, and while it may seem unusual that a regulation concerning the EU would affect healthcare entities operating in the United States, it is the case that these regulations may indeed apply, and it is essential for all healthcare entities to be aware of the country of residence of people they serve and how they reach out to them in order to avoid running afoul of the rules.

Luckily for healthcare, a great deal of what needs to be done for GDPR compliance is already covered by HIPAA Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification requirements, but the reach of the GDPR extends to all kinds of personal data, not just health information, and places control of that information in the hands of the individuals. GDPR includes extensive personal rights that must be accommodated, such as a right to be forgotten, and requires individuals to be notified of any breaches of their information, in some circumstances within just 72 hours.

Not being prepared for GDPR leaves an entity open to penalties based on a percentage of revenues (or a maximum in the millions of euros, whichever is greater), which can add up to significant amounts, so it is essential that GDPR be taken seriously, and that the rules are implemented as appropriate for your organization and your patients.

Seminar Fee Includes:

Why Should You Attend:

It may come as a surprise, but regulations implemented in the European Union can apply to US organizations when they have customers that are EU residents, or reach out to EU residents as potential customers. The General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, is focused on individual rights concerning any and all personally identifiable data that may be collected by an organization. It is not limited to certain kinds of data, but encompasses all personally identifiable data and provides the rules for allowing individuals to have easy access to their data and to ask that it be deleted or transferred.

The GDPR also includes extensive requirements to secure personal information and protect it from breaches, similar to HIPAA requirements but with more strict requirements and applying to all data, not just Protected Heath Information. HIPAA requires a Notice of Privacy Practices but does not require a consent before any information is collected. GDPR, on the other hand, requires explicit, clear, readable consent before any information is gathered.

Clearly, having a good, solid HIPAA compliance program in place is a good start for GDPR compliance, but GDPR compliance requires additional effort beyond that required for HIPAA compliance. How will you identify individuals who are EU residents in your systems so that they can be afforded the rights conferred by GDPR? How will you know which of your patients need to be notified within 72 hours according to the GDPR rules in the event of a breach of the privacy or security of their information?

The penalties for violations can easily run into the millions of dollars for organizations that neglect their obligations under the rules. This session will prepare healthcare organizations to make the plans necessary to deal with GDPR compliance today as well as deal with the new California law similar to GDPR scheduled to go into effect January 1, 2020. It is clear that the need to understand what rules apply to which patients complicates record keeping; adopting processes that will support the expanding complexity of individual rights today will make compliance easier tomorrow.

    Local Attractions of Philadelphia, PA

    Philadelphia Museum of Art

    Philadelphia Museum of Art

    The Philadelphia Museum of Art sits majestically on a rise at the end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The vast collections of this temple of art make it the third-largest art museum in the country, and an absolute must-see on the city's cultural circuit.
    Among its impressive holdings in Renaissance, American, Impressionist and Modern art, some standouts include a great Rogier van der Weyden altarpiece, a large Bathers by Cezanne, a room devoted to Philadelphia's own Thomas Eakins, and Marcel Duchamp's notorious mixed-media Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors (The Large Glass), exactly as the dada master installed it.

    Valley Forge National Historical Park

    Valley Forge National Historical Park

    With more than 3,600 acres of rolling hills and well-worn trails, Valley Forge is now a magnet for runners, bicyclists and picnickers as well as history buffs.
    The vast expanse of open space links the Schuylkill River Trail to the Horse Shoe Trail, turning the park into a major hub in a 75-mile system linking Philadelphia to the Appalachian Trail.

    The Liberty Bell Center

    The Liberty Bell Center

    The Liberty Bell has a new home, and it is as powerful and dramatic as the Bell itself. Throughout the expansive, light-filled Center, larger-than-life historic documents and graphic images explore the facts and the myths surrounding the Bell.

    National Constitution Center

    National Constitution Center

    The 160,000-square-foot National Constitution Center explores and explains this amazing document through high-tech exhibits, artifacts, and interactive displays. The Kimmel Theater, a 350-seat star-shaped theater, features “Freedom Rising,” a multimedia production combining film, a live actor and video projection on a 360° screen to tell the stirring story of “We the people.”

    The Franklin Institute

    The Franklin Institute

    An innovator in designing hands-on exhibits before “interactive” became a buzzword, The Franklin Institute is as clever as its namesake. Its eminently touchable attractions explore science in disciplines ranging from sports to space.
    Highlights include The Sports Challenge, which uses virtual-reality technology to illustrate the physics of sports; The Train Factory's climb-aboard steam engine; Space Command's simulated earth-orbit research station; a fully equipped weather station; and exhibits on electricity.

    The Barnes Foundation

    The Barnes Foundation

    The Barnes Foundation was created in 1922, a school originating with Barnes’ educational experimentation in his Argyrol (pharmaceutical) factory. Barnes and The Foundation’s first director of education, John Dewey, were interested in fostering cognitive development through new approaches to education, and in heightening critical-thinking and problem-solving skills through the study of art. Barnes, like Dewey, was actively engaged in development of an intellectual framework and educational philosophies and practices with many of the best artists and thinkers of his day.

    The Rocky Statue

    The Rocky Statue

    One of Philadelphia’s most famous pieces of public art is a bigger-than-life boxer… literally. Originally created for Rocky III, the sculpture is now a real-life monument to a celluloid hero. The fictional Rocky Balboa of Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky movies was immortalized in bronze in 1980. After filming for the movie completed, Stallone donated the statue to the City of Philadelphia.

    Franklin Square

    Franklin Square

    Franklin Square, one of Philadelphia’s five original public squares laid out by William Penn in his original plan for the city, has undergone a dramatic renovation. The park now boasts several family-friendly attractions, including a miniature golf course, classic carousel, burger joint, storytelling bench, picnic area and more.
