Summary

Amidst the attention given to the latest U.S. federal healthcare law, BVR's 2014 Online Symposium on Healthcare Valuation begins with a look at the still-prevalent consequences of a previous statute: the 1996 Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which was extensively modified in 2009 as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and its constituent Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. While the law's protections for the privacy and security of health data were primarily meant for medical professionals and insurers, business appraisers and accountants who work in the healthcare industry can still feel their impact. In HIPAA, Valuation and Litigation: Civil and Criminal Implications for the Unaware, expert Mark Dietrich, curator of BVR's 2014 Online Symposium on Healthcare Valuation, covers what every appraiser should know when working in the healthcare field: from the protections in that law to the penalties appraisers risk by violating these regulations.
