                                 Seminars

                                 Unlike the multitude of HIPAA seminars that are either designed
                                 to make HIPAA compliance seem so daunting that it cannot be
                                 accomplished or so simple that it means no more than revising
                                 your patient consent forms, this seminar focuses on what really
                                 matters without the hyperbole. We have assembled a panel of top
                                 health care executives, information technology consultants,
                                 attorneys and a Special Agent with the FBI's National
                                 Infrastructure Protection Center to focus on the real issues
                                 confronting health care providers, payers and insurers alike --
                                 CONFIDENTIALITY, PRIVACY and SECURITY. Guided by
                                 the experience of individuals who manage, implement or oversee
                                 the protection of confidential health care information, the panel
                                 will address everything from trouble-shooting advice from
                                 compliance officers who have overcome HIPAA pitfalls to data
                                 security.

                                 hostile environment with new theories of liability and damages

                                 Managed care companies continue to attempt to minimize health
                                 care costs while at the same time trying to limit their legal liability
                                 related to the delivery of patient care. This session will address
                                 both liability and contract issues associated with these efforts. We
                                 will examine recent developments in issues of liability of managed
                                 care companies in connection with the delivery of patient care and
                                 the impact of the Patient Bill of Rights legislation. We will also
                                 present the perspectives of both managed care and provider
                                 representatives on a number of specific issues that the parties must
                                 resolve in the negotiation of a participating provider agreement.
