    (Dianne J. Bourque, Speaker )

On Nov. 26, 2012, the Office for Civil Rights issued direction on how Protected Health Information may be de-identified.  This panel of healthcare practitioners will discuss the new OCR guidance and additional methods available to de-identify health information. They will also touch on the challenges of balancing privacy risks with the need to use the information for research and other public priorities.
