This one-day seminar will be addressing how medical practice 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 for 2018.
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 regarding the do's and don'ts with HIPAA - I want to add clarity for specific to medical practice managers.
We will get into the do's and don'ts relating to all of the standards under the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rule and also get into some specifics relating to technology (i.e. texting, emailing, personal devices, viruses, ransomware, etc.), and some simple ways to prevent problems.
I will speak on specific experiences from over 17 years of experience in working as an outsourced compliance officer and as an expert witness on HIPAA cases, and will thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information.
Why you should attend:
My goal is to make this extremely complex enigma known as "HIPAA" very easy to understand with a painless step by step approach to an otherwise harrowing task... Times have changed and new laws are now in place concerning Protected Health Information. The best way to protect your practice or business and save yourself future headaches and possible litigation or Federal fines is to be proactive instead of reactive.
What specifically do we need to look for as a practice manager these days?
This once rarely enforced law has changed and you need to know what's going on!
Protect your practice or business!
These day's trial attorney's pose an even higher risk than the Federal government!
State laws are now in place increasing liability for patient remedies!
What factors might spurn a lawsuit or a HIPAA audit? ...are you doing these things?
