Digital Health CTO Playbook & Legal Barriers of Entry

September 29, 2015

With popular demand, the Hacking Health New York group is bringing an astounding session on the most talked about topic in healthcare: HIPAA.

Please join us for an evening of amazing discussion full of legal and technical insights on Regulatory Compliance, HIPAA, Security, Privacy and Intellectual Property requirements for healthcare organizations and startups so that they can better plan, design, implement, and operate HIPAA compliant systems. We will host two great personalities to complement the discussion and best practices covering regulatory and technology side of things to better equip organizations in implementing healthcare privacy and security policies.

Chas Ballew, Co-founder & CEO, Aptible will reveal meaningful insights from his very own “The Digital Health CTO Playbook” covering HIPAA Requirements, Design, Architecture & Hosting, Technical Services, Workflow, Training, Tactical and Strategic Contingency Planning, and Audit and Security Assessments. Chas is an attorney and a former government regulatory lawyer. Prior to founding Aptible, he served on active duty with the Office of the Army General Counsel in Washington, DC. He is a graduate of Princeton University and the University of Michigan Law School, and is @chasballew on the web.

Aptible’s mission is to help customers work safely with the most meaningful, sensitive data in highly regulated industries by building and providing devops tools that streamline information security compliance for web and mobile applications. Aptible currently focuses primarily in healthcare, on HIPAA compliance and is backed by the best investors in tech, including Y Combinator (S14), Rock Health, Maverick and Lux Capital.

Whether you are a developer, designer, engineer, or other interested in the healthcare field, or a doctor, nurse, administrator, researcher already in the field, come out and join together to discuss innovative solutions to problems in this industry. We are continuing our NYC Chapter’s ever-so-popular tradition of Hacking Health Cafes – a series of monthly evenings with the goal of bringing together entrepreneurs in the healthcare industry, fostering relationships between technology talent and healthcare experts, and keeping up-to-date with local collaborations, projects and startups.
