The goal of this web seminar is to review how HIPAA and its Privacy Rule permits the sharing of patient information with family members, friends and caregivers, as well as the components of the HIPAA right-of-access and ways in which it enables individuals and their caregivers to be more involved in their own care.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Understand how HIPAA permits the sharing of patient information with one’s “personal representative,” family members, friends and caregivers;
  • Describe how and when protected health information may be used and shared;
  • List the components of the HIPAA access right, including an individual’s ability to direct a copy of their health information to a third party; and,
  • Describe how the HIPAA right of access enables individuals and their caregivers to become more involved in their care.

Presenters:

Rachel Seeger is the senior advisor for Public Affairs and Outreach at the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and has since 1999 worked on the HIPAA Rules for HHS.

 

 

 

Charles Sabatino is the director of the American Bar Association’s Commission on Law and Aging, where since 1984, as senior attorney and then as director, he has been responsible for the ABA Commission’s policy research, project development, policy consultations, and education in areas of health law, long-term care, guardianship and capacity issues, surrogate decision-making, and legal services delivery to older persons.
