Interpreting the New De-Identification Standards

Original Broadcast Date: January 17, 2013
This fall, both the U.S. HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) published guidance on data de-identification. The OCR guidelines are intended to clarify how to interpret the HIPAA Privacy Rule's de-identification standards and provide certainty on some of the issues creating confusion among covered entities. The ICO code of practice provides a set of general principles and specific techniques that can be applied. Join our panel of legal and operational experts to examine:
  • Key points in the new OCR guidelines and ICO code
  • How these standards differ from current practices
  • Ways you should change your practices in light of the new guidance
