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, as 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 1,000 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), and 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.
