HIPAA and Patient- and Family-Centered Care

Many health care providers believe that the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) presents a barrier to the practice of patient- and family-centered care. When interpreted correctly, however, the regulations actually provide new opportunities for collaboration rather than limiting them. Join this webinar to learn more about how HIPAA can facilitate health care professionals working in partnership with patients and families.
