Compliance with HIPAA has become of increasing importance as oversight by the US Department of Health and Services has changed this year.  HHS will no longer just respond to complaints, but rather will now randomly audit covered entities, including mental health practices.  HHS will specifically target major areas of non-compliance that were identified in prior pilot audits.  Those areas, on which this program will focus, include aspects of privacy and security of protected health information such as updating of paperwork, completion of risk assessments, emailing and texting of PHI, use of portable devices and policies for breach notification.   


Bruce V. Hillowe, J.D., Ph.D.  is a mental healthcare attorney with a law practice in Mineola, New York.  A graduate of Binghamton University, Duke University School of Law, and Adelphi University Derner Institute (Clinical Psychology and Postdoctoral Programs), he formerly practiced as a psychologist-psychoanalyst, including as a coordinator of clinical training and director of a forensic mental health service.  He was a teaching attending psychologist in law and ethics at a major teaching hospital for 15 years. He currently teaches courses in ethics and law as adjunct faculty at the Derner Institute.   He is legal counsel to numerous mental health facilities, institutes, and practitioners and sponsors legal plans for professional associations. He has written articles and book chapters including for law reviews and healthcare publications, most recently regarding scope of practice and disciplinary defense.  He is listed in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers in healthcare law and is a "SuperLawyer" featured in the New York Times Magazine.
