30 Minute Skills: HIPAA and Public Records
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, is one of the most misunderstood laws. Government officials and the general public often incorrectly cite the 25-year-old federal statute when discussing health data. During the last 16 months in particular, public agencies have improperly used HIPAA as a reason to withhold requested documents about COVID-19. Now, with reporting focused on vaccinations and the lifting of pandemic restrictions, misinformation about the law continues to circulate.

By attending this class, you will learn:

- The history and purpose of HIPAA.
- Under what circumstances and to what types of entities HIPAA applies.
- How to best respond to public record denials that are incorrectly attributed to HIPAA.
