On Tuesday, April 30, 2002; 2:00 pm-3:15 pm EST, The American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) and The American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science (ASCLS) will provide a timely and useful audioconference on how to implement the new medical privacy standards.
In less than one year, the new privacy standards published by the Department of Health and Human Services will take effect. If you have yet to address this issue, are currently working on your plan, or want to make certain your plan meets regulations, this may prove a useful program.
AACC’s top privacy expert, Peter Kazon, JD, Partner, Mintz Levin, Washington, DC will explain:
* Who has access to patient data and when consent is required
* How to meet the "minimum necessary" requirements
* How the new rules affect research and quality assessment activities
* How to document adequate staff training
* What are the penalties for noncompliance
Laboratory directors, lab managers, IVD manufacturers, R&D manufacturers, federal and state regulators, clinical laboratory consultants, members of the press and everyone who wants to stay knowledgeable on these important standards should attend.
