Overview:

Covered entities and business associates have very specific requirements under the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule and Breach Notification Rule. Enforced by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) HIPAA appears to be constantly changing, not based on new regulations, but guidance and newsletters from the OCR, Office of the Inspector General, Office of National Coordinator and CMS.

In addition, OCR adopts many of the publications from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Without a clear understanding of how to apply the standards in your office, you will most likely be in violation of some aspect of HIPAA every day. Small matters such as not posting your Notice of Privacy Practices (NPP) in your waiting room or not listing electronic exchanges on your Notice.

Did you know that the acknowledgement of receipt of NPP must be resigned every 3 years? Authorization forms are another document your office encounters every day. Without the nine required elements the document is not valid and could result in a HIPAA breach (unauthorized disclosure) and open your office up to a law suit.

One of the benefits to knowing the HIPAA rules is that it will allow you to provide better patient care, at times office staff will not relay necessary information to friends and family out of the fear that HIPAA does not allow such disclosures.

HIPAA Security Rule violations can result in major breaches of your patient information. Not having the proper security in place opens your practice/business to massive HIPAA fines because you did not protect patient privacy. We will go over reasonable and appropriate security measures for the small, medium and large size practice and company.

Not performed your yearly risk analysis. The average fine to a practice is $1000.00 per day going back six years. Not only is your office required to have a yearly risk assessment, you must develop and implement a risk management plan based on the risk analysis.

During this webinar we will go over 100 different ways your practice/business is violating HIPAA every day. Make sure you don't miss a minute.

Why should you Attend: HIPAA is complex and misunderstood. We'll review the latest guidelines to ensure your practice or business is up to date on the requirements to avoid fines, breaches, and security incidents. The HIPAA Privacy and Security and Breach Notification rule contains thousands of pages of rules and regulations your office must comply with on a daily basis or face fines, lawsuits and loss of trust from your patients.

The legal regulations are only a small part of the guidance your office must follow, all Health and Human Services agencies are involved in HIPAA guidance In addition, the Office for Civil Rights adopts many of NIST publications which each can be hundreds of pages. Our webinar will simplify your requirements by showing you the most common HIPAA violations. This information is based on 8 years of working with small to large practices and business associates.
