How to Set Up HMIS Privacy Policies

Upcoming Free Webinar

Thursday, April 13, 2017

1pm PT | 4pm ET

Duration: 45 minutes


Writing HMIS privacy policies for the first time? Or maybe you’re looking to revise your current policies? Either way, let’s do it.

Privacy policies touch everything we do in Human Services. From data collection, to coordinated entry, to reporting, client confidentiality must remain a top priority. As a system administrator, you have a lot to consider as you work to ensure your policies are clearly defined, documented, and maintained.

In This Webinar, We’ll Provide:

  • An overview of HMIS-related data privacy laws (e.g. HIPAA, VAWA, FERPA)
  • Quick look at the basics of data privacy
  • In-depth walk-through of the HMIS Proposed Rule requirements
  • Some additional tips

At Bitfocus, we’re no stranger to data privacy. As we’ve developed our own client management software—and are current system administrators for communities such as Seattle / King County, State of Nevada, and Santa Clara County—we’ve had years of experience working with privacy policies and their role within systems of care. Our webinar presenter, Jeff Ugai (Director of Privacy & Customer Advocacy at Bitfocus), is especially well-versed. You can trust us.
