Two Day HIPAA 2017 Program - Metairie,LA, United States - February 23-24, 2017 - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "HIPAA 2017" conference to their offering.

This lesson will be addressing how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) need to get their HIPAA house in order as HIPAA is now fully enforced and the government is not using kid gloves any more.

It will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule and any other applicable updates for 2017 and beyond.

There are an enormous amount of issues and risks for covered entities and business associates these days.

I will speak on specific experiences from over 17 years of experience in working as an outsourced compliance auditor, expert witness on multiple HIPAA cases, and thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information.

More importantly I will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.
