What to Do When the Law Comes Knocking

When served with a subpoena, order, or warrant, healthcare providers are often caught between a rock and a hard place: How to adhere to HIPAA rules while also assisting law enforcement and the judicial process? Police, prosecutors, and defense attorneys often don’t understand what HIPAA is—or the penalties providers can face for running afoul of it. The result? During a law-enforcement event, you may face threats, or simply bad information, when you insist on complying with information confidentiality laws.

Learn to make that struggle less contentious and confusing. Join Kim Stanger, a medical regulations expert, as he guides you through the complicated rules of HIPAA and how to react when the law comes knocking. Stanger will review HIPAA rules—and exceptions to those rules—summarize common state laws that require or allow disclosures; and provide practical guidance on how to respond to orders, subpoenas, and other law enforcement requests.

This conference will arm attendees with documents you can use when responding to judicial orders or law enforcement requests. Plus, you’ll know the details of HIPAA rules and how they are applied in legal settings, and you’ll understand the laws concerning disclosures—both those that permit them and those that prohibit them.
