Speaker: Sarah Freymann Fontenot

    In 1996, Congress passed the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) which had immediate repercussions involving changes in the scope and enforcement of Fraud & Abuse investigations nationwide, and promised future concerns in the ares of security, privacy and transmission of electronic patient data.
