National notifications regarding breaches in HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) seem to be occurring at an alarming rate despite the revamped federal HIPAA Omnibus Rule that holds covered entities and business associates more accountable for protecting patient data. This panel of experts will discuss the impact of the regulatory changes that began in September 2013, what to expect from an audit, how to improve privacy and security at your organization, privacy and security issues related to mobile medical technologies and other real life risks that

many organizations are struggling to address.
