This webinar discusses the privacy and security concerns surrounding AI's use in healthcare, highlighting the importance of HIPAA compliance for Covered Entities and Business Associates.


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transforming health care, drawing on vast resources of health information to reshape everything from diagnosis to treatment, payment, health care operations, research and much more.

AI’s reliance on individually identifiable health information raises patient privacy and security questions that were unimaginable when the HIPAA Rules were developed.

The problem can be stated simply - what is AI, and what does it mean for HIPAA compliance?

Key Points

  • Compliance with HIPAA Rules, standards and implementation specifications covering the privacy and security of protected health information (PHI) is well-defined for Covered Entities and Business Associates in the U. S. healthcare industry - as it existed 10 years ago
  • AI is being adopted rapidly by the U. S. health care industry to improve all aspects of the industry
  • AI draws on and processes information including PHI raising serious questions about maintaining PHI privacy and security
  • Covered Entities and Business Associates alike have to figure out how they may use AI without violating HIPAA
This webinar reviews AI, the limits of HIPAA and tough questions that need to be addressed now.

Why should you Attend: AI is not coming to health care - it is here. And so is HIPAA, one of the few laws in place covering PHI that fuels health care AI.
