Creating Confidence When You’re the First or Only at the Table
Asia Bribiesca-Hedin
Leading yourself and your teams toward a common goal can be challenging in and of itself, but when you factor in conflicting agendas, rapidly shifting priorities, and distributed teams, it all but guarantees you’ll waste even more time and energy on self-doubt. If second-guessing, playing small, or “faking it” get in your way, this session will deliver immediate, actionable strategies to help you lead with confidence in any environment, without the need to pretend or “wing it”.

Privacy in a Post-Roe World
Elizabeth McElhiney
The U.S. Supreme Court’s recent ruling reversing the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision has forced many states to consider updating their legislation on the topic of abortion. The polarizing nature of this ruling means that covered entities and their practices will be in the cross-hairs of additional state and federal legislation. State legislation may mean health agencies’ designated record sets (DRS) must include (or exclude) information relating to pregnancy or reproductive health. These potentially new regulations could create additional sensitive information categories for electronic medical record (EMR) systems to manage, and, especially, for release of information (ROI) professionals to navigate. This presentation will discuss this, along with some helpful ways to ensure your EMRs are set up and staff are trained to manage this ever-changing landscape.
