YOUR ESD and the HIPAA Law:
Ethical Considerations

WEBCAST: 6:30pm Monday, July 30

 

Join SAFE-D and Andrew Tatgenhorst of the Underwood Law Firm for a discussion of issues surrounding the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act -- HIPAA. An ESD that provides medical response – be it ambulance or emergency medical first-resonse –
faces a gauntlet of concerns related to patient privacy and ethical decision-making. Avoid the pitfalls with an experienced attorney.

Cost is only $35 for representatives from SAFE-D members; $55 for nonmembers. SAFE-D has applied to Texas A&M's V.G. Young Institute of County Government for certification of one (1) hour of ESD Commissioner Training Credit for this webcast.

Share Your Knowledge with ESDs Across Texas

Your ESD or emergency services-related business has learned a lot. You can help your friends and colleagues by sharing that experience at the SAFE-D Annual Conference, Feb. 7-9, at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Convention Center in Frisco.

SAFE-D is looking for presentation proposals to enhance ESD officials' knowledge and improve their ability to serve their communities. We're looking for proposals that deal with topics such as: Administration Fire Operations EMS Operations Intergovernmental Relations Meeting protocol Records management Disaster Recovery Mutual Aid Finances

If you're selected to make the proposed presentation, you will be notified about the time and day. The presentation should be about 45 minutes long with 5 to 10 minutes of question-and-answer. Most presenters use PowerPoint for their presentation. SAFE-D will provide a projector, screen and Internet access. We ask that you bring your computer with a VGA adapter.

Please note: While SAFE-D welcomes presentation proposals from businesses associated with emergency services, we do not permit "sales pitches;" the presentations must be informational and apply broadly to the ESD community, not to a single vendor.
