2018 Updated HIPAA Security Rule - Explained

Duration :

Course Description:

         This HIPAA Security Rule webinar will be addressing how practice/business managers (or compliance officers) need to get their HIPAA house in order before the imminent audits occur. It will also address major changes under the HIPAA Security Rule and any other applicable updates for 2018. Areas also covered will be texting, email, encryption, medical messaging, voice data and risk factors as they relate to IT. Brian will also go into details regarding the top areas of non-compliance relating to the Security Rule and common sense ways (and resources) to get this fixed!

         The primary goal is to ensure everyone is well educated on what is the myth and what is the reality with this law, there is so much misleading information all regarding the do's and don'ts with HIPAA – Brian will add clarity for compliance officers and/or practice managers/business owners. He 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. Brian will also speak to real life litigated cases I have worked where HIPAA is being used to justify state cases of negligence – THIS IS BECOMING A HUGE RISK! In addition, this course will cover the highest risk factors for being sued as well as being audited (these two items tend to go hand in hand).
