Overview: This lesson will be going into great detail regarding you practice or business

information technology and how it relates to the HIPAA Security Rule, in particular portable

devices. Areas covered will be texting, email, encryption, medical messaging, voice data and

risk factors as they relate to personal devices. 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 speak on specific experiences from over 18 years of experience in working as an

outsourced compliance auditor, expert witness on multiple HIPAA cases, and thoroughly explain

how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health

information. More importantly I will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking

proactive steps and utilizing best practices. Don't always believe what you read online about

HIPAA, especially as it relates to encryption and IT, there are a lot of groups selling more

than is necessarily required.

Why should you Attend: HIPAA and personal devices - what we can and can't do! HIPAA NOW HAS

TEETH! Be prepared for what's new in 2017 as it relates to personal devices as well as

emailing and texting! Protect your practice or business! 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 portable devices, texting, and

emailing of PHI.

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 practices. I

have also been expert witness on multiple court cases where a business or medical practice is

being sued for not doing their due diligence to minimize risk. These day's trial attorney's

pose a higher risk than the Federal government!
