Why you Should be Worried about HIPAA 2017

Why you Should be Worried about HIPAA 2017
Event on 2017-12-07 09:00:00

This seminar will be addressing how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) need to get their HIPAA house in order before the imminent audits or (even worse) litigation occurs against your organization under state laws of negligence.
It will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule and any other applicable updates for 2017. Areas covered will be texting, email, encryption, medical messaging, voice data and risk factors as they relate to IT.
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 over regarding the do's and don'ts with HIPAA – I want to add clarity for compliance officers
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 audits conducted by the Federal government (I've been on both sides of these audits) what your highest risks are for being fined (some of the risk factors may surprise you).
In addition, this course will cover the highest risk factors for being sued for wrongful disclosures of PHI and the manner in which patients are now using state laws to sue for wrongful disclosures.
Don't always believe what you read online about HIPAA, especially as it relates to encryption and IT, there are a lot of groups selling more than is necessarily required.

Why you should attend:

There are major changes to HIPAA set forth by the Federal government whereby patients can receive remedies for HIPAA violations and business associates (i.e. law firms) must now comply directly with HIPAA.
Omnibus has changed the HIPAA landscape for good!
State laws are now in place increasing liability for patient remedies!
This once rarely enforced law has changed and you need to know what's going on!
Protect your practice or business!
Why are the Feds enforcing after all these years?
We will be discussing some of the changes taking place in Washington with the Health and Human Services in regards to the enforcement of the HIPAA laws already on the books.
I will also thoroughly go through multiple litigated cases I have been a part of involving patients suing for HIPAA violations – THIS IS A MUST TO UNDERSTAND!!
Changes affecting law firms dealing with protected health information
I will also be discussing factors might cause an unwanted visit or letter from the Office of Civil Rights and how to prepare for the audit and deal with the Feds.

Areas Covered in the Session:

• History of HIPAA
• HIPAA Omnibus Rule
• How to perform a HIPAA Security Risk Assessment
• What is involved in a Federal audit and how is it conducted
