The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) includes some $19 billion for health information technology (HIT), with a goal of having electronic health records (EHRs) available to every American by 2014. The bill also makes dozens of changes to HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), extending certain privacy and security requirements to companies that collect and use individuals'health information, such as those that offer personal health records (PHRs) or conduct certain public health activities like facilitating the reporting of adverse events. This webinar explores the implications of these new requirements for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, clinical research organizations (CROs), and researchers.
