Breakout sessions at this year's Technology and Health program will cover six major areas: Security, Contracting, Advanced HIPAA Issues, Clinical Research, HIPAA Enforcement, and Ethics. Speakers will offer practical advice for lawyers, privacy officers, compliance officers, healthcare executives, and IT personnel with written outlines including checklists and sample policies and contract language.
The program will feature a Keynote Address by Larry Lessig, Professor of Law at Stanford Law School and author of The Future of Ideas: The Fate of Commons in a Connected World and Code, and Other Laws of Cyberspace. There also will be a plenary session highlighting the findings of the 2003 Health Lawyers' Public Interest Colloquium, Minimizing Medical Errors: Legal Issues in the Debate on Improving Patient Safety, and examining the key legal and policy issues relating to the effective deployment of information technology to reduce medical errors.
Don't miss the 2003 Technology and Health program. This program is designed to benefit healthcare personnel with various levels of technology sophistication. If you are in-house and need to know how to implement the HIPAA privacy and security rules or are interested in learning new negotiating strategies for healthcare technology agreements, this is your program. If you are highly proficient in technology and need to remain on the cutting edge, you will find this program and the faculty enormously helpful in reaching that goal. If you are a technology neophyte, you will find the primers and the basic sessions beneficial in learning key issues in health and technology law.
Plan to join Health Lawyers and your colleagues in San Francisco in October.
