HIPAA Education Conference Postponed


Due to a delay in the Department of Health and Human Services’ revisions to final privacy rules and security regulations for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Catholic Health Initiatives has postponed the HIPAA Education Conference. The conference, which had been scheduled for April 9-10, will be rescheduled for the fall of 2002 at the Embassy Suites Lakefront in Chicago, Ill. The HIPAA Program Office will offer a series of educational Web conferences on transaction and codeset solution design and implementation in late spring.

For more information, contact your HIPAA leader or Tracy L. Thomas, director of the national HIPAA program, at 610/358-4528 or tracythomas@chi-east.org.
