Ted Claypoole Serves as Panelist at AMC “Meaningful Privacy and Security Conference”

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Womble Carlyle attorney Ted Claypoole served as a panelist at the 6th Annual Academic Medical Centers (AMC) “Meaningful Privacy and Security” Conference presented by the North Carolina Healthcare Information and Communications Alliance (NCHICA) on June 7-9, 2010 at The Friday Center in Chapel Hill, NC.

Conference attendees were educated on ways other AMC and learning hospital colleagues are handling important privacy and security issues arising from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), such as Breach Notification requirements, EHR certification, comparative effectiveness research data, and compliance audits.

During the presentation entitled, “Cloud Computing & Clinical Research: What Are We Handing Over?” Ted and his co-panelists discussed how cloud computing is currently being utilized for research, described the benefits and detriments of cloud computed securities, and identified strategies for AMC’s to consider when moving forward into this environment.

NCHICA is a nationally recognized nonprofit consortium dedicated to “improving health and care in North Carolina by accelerating the adoption of information technology and enabling policies.” Members include leading organizations in healthcare, research and information technology.
