Thursday, June 12, 2014 | 1:00 PM ET | 12:00 PM CT | 11:00 AM MT | 10:00 AM PT

The implementation of the Affordable Care Act, more commonly known as Obamacare, has been a tremendous challenge for employers, insurance companies and healthcare organizations. The consequences of the law have also been felt within the security operations of hospitals and other healthcare providers. In this webinar, we'll examine how hospitals have had to reevaluate their security programs in light of the new law, as well as how they're using technology to help mitigate risk. We'll also look at some of the other unintended consequences of the law on physical security at healthcare organizations.

Key Learning Points & Topics:

  • Financial implications of the Affordable Care Act on hospitals and other healthcare organizations and the subsequent effect it is having on their security departments and budgets
  • Mitigating threats posed by data thieves looking to take advantage of the influx of new patient records through the use of enhanced access control safeguards and other measures
  • How healthcare facilities are using the latest security technologies to enhance the safety of patients, visitors and staff members
