Overview: This webinar for HIPAA Covered Entities and Business Associates will identify

the top OCR HIPAA enforcement priorities for 2018 and explain simply how you can master HIPAA

compliance requirements for each enforcement priority.

Why should you Attend: HIPAA Compliance is in crisis throughout the United States. The Office

for Civil Rights (OCR), the HIPAA enforcement arm of the U. S. Department of Health and Human

Services has just announced results of its recent HIPAA Compliance Audits of Covered Entities

(CEs). The audited CEs represented a cross-section of all types and sizes throughout the

nation. All knew they were on a shortlist to be audited and had access well in advance to the

questions they would be asked and documents they would be required to produce. Nevertheless,

OCR found 94% (59 of 63) of CEs to be inadequate or worse in Risk Management compliance and 87%

(55 of 63) to be inadequate or worse in Risk Analysis compliance. No CE was in compliance with

the Risk Analysis required implementation specification in effect since 2005.

OCR also audited HIPAA Compliance of a randomly selected cross-section of Business Associates

(BAs) but has not released the results yet. OCR has identified HIPAA Compliance topics that are

its biggest concern and top targets for CE and BA enforcement, including, obviously Risk

Analysis-Risk Management. All are routine, easily avoided and non-compliance is extremely

dangerous for Covered Entities, Business Associates and Patients. Not surprisingly, HIPAA

Enforcement and demands for protection of Individually Identifiable Health Information is

ramping up dramatically. The public, law enforcement and elected officials are alarmed and many

are outraged by continuous, serious breaches of Health Information and medical identity theft.

More than 170 million Americans have been victimized since OCR began to keep count in 2009. And

the organizations experiencing breaches or committing violations suffered significant financial

loss and immeasurable, ongoing damage to their reputations - whether they are nationally known

or locally prominent.

This session will identify OCR's highest priorities for HIPAA Compliance and explain the simple

steps CEs and BAs may follow to comply. Some think HIPAA is complex, impossible to understand

or follow. We think differently. The secret is the HIPAA rules are easy to follow step-by-step

when you know the steps. The HIPAA Rules are a blueprint to protect Health Information. You

should attend this session to see the blueprint and learn how to find and follow the HIPAA

Rules easily, simply, step-by-step.
