The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and its Impact on Hospital Pharmacy
Please log in to view this video online.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), passed by Congress in 1996, will have profound short and long term impacts on the healthcare industry. The patient privacy and security standards delineated by the new law will especially impact hospital pharmacists.

This video—featuring leading authorities on the implication of HIPAA—helps pharmacists to understand the basic provisions of the act. It also explains some of the complex ramification of HIPAA's transactions, privacy and security standards.

For pharmacists, HIPAA will require a thorough review of the policies and procedures regarding the protection of patient confidentiality. It will likely call for the revision of procedures regarding the use, transmission, storage and disclosure of protected patient information. It may also ultimately require a major revamping of pharmacy information technology systems.

The experts on this video assert that to succeed in implementing HIPAA—and to avoid the severe penalties resulting from lack of compliance—hospital pharmacists will need to develop a new, far reaching "culture of privacy."

This program features interviews with 7 thought leaders in HIPAA: Kate Borten, CISSP, President, The Marblehead Group, Inc.; Dennis Tribble, PharmD, Chief Technical Officer, For Health Technologies, Inc; Brian Gradle, Esq, Epstein, Becker & Green, PC; Kenneth Rashbaum, Esq, Sedgwick, Detert, Moran & Arnold; Leslie Mackowiak, MS, RPh, Assistant Director of Pharmacy, Duke University Health System; George Arges, Senior Director, Amercian Hospital Association, Health Data Management Group; Michael D. Bell, Esq, Mintz, Levin, Cohen, Ferris, Glovsky & Popec, PC.
