Overview: This webinar will be addressing the ins and outs of identifying what is and what
is not PHI, proper ways to disclose this information, common sense security methods, what we can
and can't do under HIPAA relating to disclosures, and how to properly investigate a breach (or a
suspected breach). We will also 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 Omnibus Rule and any other applicable updates
relating to protected health information Additional 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 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: Are you clear on what constitutes identifiable health information vs none
identifiable health information? It can be very confusing and frustrating to say the least.
Since the HIPAA Omnibus Final ruling, the Federal government has expanded the definition of what
constituted PHI.

Is your staff trained to understand the new risks and definitions?
Do you have written policy in place relating to this?
Do you have an affective HIPAA compliance program?
New laws and funding mean increased risk for both business associates and covered entities!
HIPAA Omnibus -Do you know what's involved and what you need to do?
What does Omnibus mean for covered entities and business associates?
Why should you be concerned?
Court cases that are changing the landscape of HIPAA and patient's ability to sue!


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.
