Hospital Outsourcing and Patient Confidentiality:
Avoiding the Compliance Landmines of
HIPAA and Other Privacy Laws

Dear Healthcare Executive,

Increasingly, hospitals and other healthcare providers are outsourcing services such as medical transcription, radiology and billing to third-party providers -- potentially leaving themselves vulnerable as contractors and subcontractors gain access to patient information.

Outsourcing raises questions about the reach of HIPAA and other privacy laws and what healthcare providers can do to protect patient information and limit exposure to liability.

During "Hospital Outsourcing and Patient Confidentiality: Avoiding the Compliance Landmines of HIPAA and Other Privacy Laws," a teleconference on CD-ROM, authoritative panelists address these and other key issues:

  • Is the healthcare provider accountable for the acts of a contractor or subcontractor?
  • Can a contract effectively bind the offshore contractor that is beyond the reach of U.S. law?
  • How may healthcare providers protect themselves from liabilities associated with the risk of disclosures by providers/subcontractors beyond the reach of U.S. law?
