Garvey Schubert Barer has proven expertise in addressing both privacy and security issues under HIPAA. Since the implementation of HIPAA regulations, we have represented both large and small hospitals in handling a wide range of compliance matters. Additionally, we have had numerous engagements representing healthcare providers in Washington, Oregon and California in resolving complaints filed with the Office of Civil Rights, the federal agency charged with enforcement of the HIPAA Privacy Rule.
During the rollout period for the HIPAA privacy regulations, one of our attorneys was retained by the Washington State Medical Association (WSMA) to provide member education to hundreds of doctors and medical staff. When the HIPAA Security Standards were being implemented, WSMA once again retained him to provide additional educational seminars for its membership.
