Event Description

Jonathan P. Tomes , J.D., is Keynote Speaker at Compliance key Inc. He is a health care attorney practicing in the greater Kansas City. He is a nationally recognized authority and expert witness on the legal requirements for health information.
Jon has written more than 60 books, including the following: How to Handle HIPAA and HITECH Act Breaches, Complaints, and Investigations: Everything You Need to Know; The Compliance Guide to HIPAA and the DHHS Regulations, now in its sixth edition, along with its accompanying HIPAA Documents Resource Center CD, ; Electronic Health Records.

Overview

Every covered entity and the business associate will experience one or more security incidents every year. Such incidents range from an employee forgetting to log off with no harm done because you caught it before any unauthorized person accessed the computer to a ransomware attack in which you must pay a six-figure ransom to access your data.
Under the HITECH Act and the Omnibus Rule, covered entities and business associates must report certain breaches of PHI to the Department of Health and Human Services. These reports can result in large civil money penalties (CMP) (fines)-as high to $4.8 million to date.
Having a proper procedure to determine whether a security incident is a breach and, if so, is it reportable is absolutely crucial. Not only can it result in a CMP, it is a priority compliance issue in the HIPAA audits that are ongoing. The possibility of a CMP is illustrated by Presence Health's $475,000 settlement with the DHHS Office of Civil Rights (OCR) 2017. And it was for late reporting. God knows how bad the monetary settlement in lieu of a CMP would be if it was non-reporting rather than late reporting

FDA regulation on medical device packaging design

The FDA has regulations on medical device packaging design. This is quite natural, considering that the FDA has several regulations on all aspects of medical devices. However, it needs to be mentioned that the FDA regulation that covers medical device packaging design – Sec. 820.130 Device packaging under Subpart K–Labeling and Packaging Control -is a single liner, which only merely states that “each manufacturer shall ensure that…See More
