Conference Description:Being in compliance with HIPAA in 2018 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 breach investigation 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 fundamentals of a HIPAA compliance program.
If your healthcare practice, business, or organization needs to understand how to put HIPAA compliance program in place or make sure the current program is adequate and can withstand government scrutiny, please join us for this informative and interactive 2 day training course.
Why you should attend:
With a new year upon us, is your organization keeping up with the HIPAA requirements mandated by the Code of Federal Regulations? Many organizations still need to fully understand the requirements of a compliance program.
Why? In 2016, there was a trend towards higher settlements payments. There were 7 settlements over $1 million including $5.5 million, $3.9 million, and $2.75 million and 12 overall resolutions settlements. In 2017, there was continued HIPAA enforcement with a number of new settlements announced and the trend will continue.
Roger Severino, the Director of OCR, has said "enforcement is a key aspect of HIPAA" and organizations must embrace a "new posture of preventive security."
Attendees will leave the course clearly understanding of all the requirements for a comprehensive HIPAA compliance program and what steps need to be taken to mitigate risk. The seminar will include practical exercise to assist in knowing how to develop, review, and amend HIPAA policy and procedure. After completing this course, a Covered Entity or Business Associate will have a clear roadmap for what needs to be place when it comes to all of the HIPAA regulations.
