The EMTALA case brings significant implications that create many questions. Additionally, a new HIPAA rule underscores the importance of emergency reproductive medical care access and patient rights, echoing the foundational principles of HIPAA in safeguarding patient information. Meanwhile, updates from the Supreme Court could also offer pertinent insights, in the evolving landscape of healthcare regulations and patient care standards. Join us on Thursday, July 25th for this important presentation.
