Overview: This lesson will be addressing how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) need to get their HIPAA house in order as HIPAA is now fully enforced and the government is not using kid gloves any more. It will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule and any other applicable updates for 2016 and beyond. There are an enormous amount of issues and risks for covered entities and business associates these days.

I will speak on specific experiences from over 17 years of experience in working as an outsourced compliance auditor as well as working directly with auditors used by Health and Human Services and dispel myths vs realities. I will go over steps to take to avoid an audit or survive an audit. I have also served as expert witness on legal cases involving HIPAA violations, and I will thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information (which leads to more audits).

More importantly I will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.

This once relatively benign legislation is being fully enforced and the news is not good for covered entities or business associates!
