Topic: HIPAA/FERPA Interplay; 42 CFR Part 2; Privacy and Confidentiality State Laws (examples)

There is often confusion in the academic medical setting regarding HIPAA and FERPA and when each federal law applies and to which particular records. In this webinar, the speakers will explore the differences and interplay between HIPAA and FERPA, including:

  • Application of each federal law; 
  • The definitions of PHI, treatment records, and education records; 
  • Permissive and mandatory disclosures; 
  • Breach analysis; 
  • Required notices; 
  • and more. 

The speakers will also cover designation as a HIPAA hybrid entity. Finally, FERPA’s permissive disclosures leave room for policy decisions on when, and how much, student information should be disclosed under certain circumstances. The speakers will explore those areas and also discuss 42 CFR Part 2 and state law examples to demonstrate the further intersection between HIPAA and FERPA and more stringent privacy and confidentiality protections.
