Overview: This webinar will be addressing how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) need to get their HIPAA house in order before the imminent audits occur. It will also address major changes under the HIPAA Security Rule and any other applicable updates for 2017.

Areas also covered will be texting, email, encryption, medical messaging, voice data and risk factors as they relate to IT. I will also go into details regarding the top areas of non-compliance relating to the Security Rule and common sense ways (and resources) to get this fixed!

The primary goal is to ensure everyone is well educated on what is myth and what is reality with this law, there is so much misleading information all regarding the do’s and don'ts with HIPAA - I want to add clarity for compliance officers and/or practice managers/business owners I will uncover myths versus reality as it relates to this very enigmatic law based on over 1000 risk assessments performed as well as years of experience in dealing directly with the Office of Civil Rights HIPAA auditors.

I will also speak to real life litigated cases I have worked where HIPAA is being used to justify state cases of negligence - THIS IS BECOMING A HUGE RISK!

In addition, this course will cover the highest risk factors for being sued as well as being audited (these two items tend to go hand in hand)

Why Should you attend: Do you know what’s involved and what you need to do under the HIPAA Security Rule? Why should you be concerned?

Court cases that are changing the landscape of HIPAA and patient’s ability to sue! TRIAL ATTORNEYS ARE MORE DANGEROUS THAN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT!!

It is important to understand the new changes going on at Health and Human Services as it relates to enforcement of HIPAA for both covered entities and business associates as it relates to what we need to do as compliance officers.

You need to know how to avoid being low hanging fruit in terms of audit risk as well as being sued by individuals who have had their PHI wrongfully discloses due to bad IT or internal administrative practices.
