Virtual December Program w/Jennifer Cox

December 1 and 8

Biography: Jennifer Cox is a healthcare attorney with the firm Cox & Osowiecki, LLC, based in Hartford, CT.  She works with a variety of hospitals and healthcare facilities, community providers, and provider organizations on a wide spectrum of legal issues affecting healthcare.  Her areas of focus include regulatory compliance, quality and patient safety, privacy and security, and other issues in Health-IT.  She has been a frequent lecturer for a number of healthcare organizations including the Connecticut Hospital Association, CT-HIMA and other New England-based chapters of AHIMA, various chapters of the American Academy of Professional Coders, and the Connecticut Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics.  Jennifer has taught graduate-level university courses in the areas of Healthcare and Health-IT.  She obtained both her undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Connecticut.

Summary of December programs:  The first part of the program will examine the impact of COVID-19 on the healthcare system, specifically looking at regulatory and legal changes in place during the pandemic that affect health care delivery; what to expect from the next state legislative cycle in Connecticut; and how court cases are affected, including how potential liability relating to COVID-19 will be handled.  The program will also explore current health law issues taking place at the federal level, with a detailed look at HIPAA enforcement over the last year.

The second part of the program will provide an introduction and overview of the new federal interoperability and information blocking regulations supporting the 21st Century Cures Act, and their impact on HIPAA record release requirements.  These new rules – the most significant changes to healthcare data laws since HIPAA Privacy Rule became effective in 2003 — will drastically change the landscape for patient record access and provider data exchange for the next decade and beyond.
