Overview: Being in compliance with HIPAA involves not only ensuring you provide the appropriate patient rights and controls on your uses and disclosures of protected health information, but you also have the proper policies and procedures in place. If audited or the subject of a compliance review you will be required to show the government you have all the necessary documentation in place for safeguarding patient Protected Health Information and indicate how you addressed all required security safeguards. This starts with the understanding the fundamentals of a HIPAA and how you will be required to demonstrate your organization's compliance program.
If your healthcare practice, business, or organization needs to understand how to be prepared for an increase in HIPAA enforcement and make sure your current safeguards are adequate and can withstand government scrutiny, please join us for this informative and interactive course.
Why should you Attend: BAll most 120,000,000 individuals were affected by HIPAA data breaches in 2015. This is a significant reason why Congress has inquired about the recent and very sizeable increases in cyber-attacks that inflect the risk of medical identity theft. The HHS Office for Civil Rights not only are conducting audits but is looking to increase HIPAA enforcement.
Attendees will leave the course clearly understanding of all the requirements that must be in place for HIPAA and how to demonstrate compliance if audited.
