Webinar 1/28 – HITECH Solutions for Employee Benefits Brokers, Consultants and TPA’s

When: Thursday, January 28th, 11 AM -12:30 PM (EST) – International Privacy Day

Who Should Attend: Insurers, Benefits Consultants, Brokers, TPA’s, technology and other solution providers who handle PHI as part of their daily business

To-date almost no media focus has been put on the impact of these changes on employee benefits consultants, brokers, TPA’s and other service providers all of whom are “Business Associates” (BA’s) as well as key partners in the employee benefits supply chain.

As a result these trusted advisors and vendors have yet to fully comprehend their new legal accountabilities, compliance needs or the business, reputational risks and financial penalties their businesses face if they are not compliant by 2/17/2010.

To address this need the Industry Radar is pleased to announce its first webinar which will focus specifically on what benefits brokers, consultants, TPA’s and others need to know to comply with HIPAA, HITECH and their carrier producer agreements. The Industry Radar has partnered with ZixCorp and Compliance Helper to provide turnkey solutions to your organization that are cost effective, quick to implement and compliant.

The keynote of the 90 minute webinar will be a review of common HIPAA and HITECH misconceptions, risks and key requirements of these laws, the impact on BA’s and real-life perspective on compliance by internationally recognized information security, privacy and compliance expert Rebecca Herold, “The Privacy Professor”®. An insurance industry veteran, Rebecca has provided information security, privacy and compliance services to organizations in many industries throughout the world for over two decades.

Rebecca is also one of the creators of Compliance Helper, an online information security and privacy compliance platform designed by industry veterans who know how to combine computers and people to create secure and exceptional systems and solutions to help BA’s become and remain compliant.

The second guest speaker will be Steve Irons, Vice President of Sales for Zixcorp, the leader in email encryption services. Steve will address the issue of email encryption as a key element of a BA’s compliance initiatives. Under HITECH, encrypting ePHI provides BA’s with a “safe harbor” from breach notice requirements.

Steve will also discuss why ZixCorp’s “best method of delivery” platform already provides HIPAA compliant email solutions to healthplans insuring over 100 million Americans including Wellpoint, Coventry, Assurant and more than 30 Blues plans and how it can be put to work for BA’s of all sizes.
