MRO and I are proud to announce our 2020 webinar series. I would like to invite you to join me and my colleagues to review, analyze and discuss the hottest topics impacting Protected Health Information (PHI) today.

This year’s webinar series focuses on best practices related to industry trends and challenges, leadership development and regulatory changes that affect the secure and compliant exchange of PHI. The sessions address the needs of Health Information Management (HIM), privacy, compliance, risk management, security and other healthcare professionals seeking up-to-date information. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from seasoned industry experts!

Highlighted below are the four sessions included in our webinar series.

The Right ROI Solution, Information Blocking, Workforce Training, and Privacy and Security Trends

Release of Information: Industry Changes and the Road to the Right Solution

This presentation explores results from a nationwide survey of senior HIM professionals about the ROI challenges, priorities and strategies at the forefront of today’s healthcare ecosystem. The survey was commissioned and published by MRO and conducted by Porter Research. I will guide attendees through a discussion regarding the right time to consider a new strategy and ROI partner, the meaning of transparency in partnership, key criteria for success and more.

Information Blocking Rule: The Impact to HIM

The Information Blocking Rule encourages the flow of information for patient-enhanced management of their own healthcare through the use of health information. As a result, we expect to see increased patient-directed flow of their health information to APIs and other support management tools. MRO’s privacy and compliance expert, Rita Bowen, and MRO’s legal expert, Danielle Wesley, Esq., will discuss how this rule appears to conflict with areas of HIPAA and what that means for HIM departments.

HIM Workforce Training: Developing Tomorrow’s Leaders

The evolving HIM landscape demands new skillsets and expertise for the workforce. MRO’s motivation and development expert, Mariela Twiggs, will provide best practices for training and retaining your employees. Attendees will take away valuable knowledge to develop their staff into tomorrow’s leaders.

Watch List: 2021 Privacy and Security Trends

This presentation recaps 2020 privacy and security trends affecting the HIM industry. The session also focuses on the outlook for HIM in 2021 and how to prepare for the future. MRO’s privacy and compliance expert, Rita Bowen, and MRO’s IT expert and CIO, Anthony Murray, will review watch list resources and provide related links. This timely information is most valuable to HIM directors, compliance and privacy officers, security officers, chief information officers and chief financial officers.

I will present our first webinar, Release of Information: Industry Changes and the Road to the Right Solution, on April 15, 2020 at 2 pm ET. Register today!
