IHA has partnered with law firm Shook, Hardy & Bacon for a webinar on the relationship between BIPA and hospitals. The webinar will explore the rapidly evolving implications of the law.

The Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) has been in effect for over a decade, yet the landmark ruling still causes some confusion among healthcare providers.

IHA legal counsel will moderate the discussion on:

  • Litigation related to biometric privacy laws;

  • Liability exposure for a hospital;

  • Which industry segments are being targeted;

  • Common allegations; and

  • Potential damages and factors driving settlements.

See our flyer.
