Ensuring HIPAA Compliance and Avoiding Penalties

The combination of the implementation of new HIPAA regulations in the HIPAA Omnibus Update of 2013 and increased enforcement and audit activity has forced healthcare organizations to review their compliance and to ensure that they have the proper policies, procedures, and forms in place.

Because of this, HIPAA Privacy Officers have been renewing their compliance activities and reviewing their documentation to make sure they can meet the challenges of the new rules and avoid breaches and penalties for compliance violations. In addition, the department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has been issuing new guidance and new enforcement settlements, which provide extensive insights into what behavior is permissible by a Covered Entity and what is not.

Under HIPAA and the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA); patients also now have new rights to directly access test results from the laboratories that create the data. Labs that did not deal directly with patients before will now have to create patient-facing operations. The way in which they communicate sensitive results to patients will come under scrutiny.

A complete training session

In view of all these; it is necessary for professionals in the healthcare industry to understand the ways by which to comply with HIPAA. A learning session that will provide background on the guidance and enforcement activity and identifies key issues for HIPAA Privacy Officers to focus on is being organized by MentorHealth, a leading provider of professional trainings for the healthcare industry. Jim Sheldon-Dean, founder and director of compliance services at Lewis Creek Systems, LLC, will be the speaker at this session. Just visit to enroll for this high-value webinar session.

Aimed at Covered Entities and Business Associates

All the aspects of importance to HIPAA Privacy Rule compliance, such as what is new in the regulations, what change one needs to implement in one’s organization, and what Covered Entities and Business Associates need to address for ensuring compliance are some of the issues Jim will cover at this session.

He will provide the background and details of the most important privacy issues that any healthcare information privacy officer needs to know, what needs to be done for HIPAA compliance, and what can happen when compliance is not adequate. He will explain audits and enforcement, and how Privacy regulations relate to Security and Breach regulations, apart from teaching how to respond to privacy and security breaches and ways of preventing them. Jim will offer many references to all these points.

The following areas will be covered at this webinar:

  • Overview of HIPAA Regulations
  • Responsibilities of the HIPAA Privacy Officer
  • HIPAA Privacy Rule Principles, Policies and Procedures
  • Recent Changes to the HIPAA Rules
  • Implementing the New HIPAA Omnibus Rules
  • HIPAA Security and Breach Notification Rule Principles
  • Documentation, Training, Drills and Self-Audits
  • HIPAA requirements for access and patient preferences, as well as the requirements to protect PHI
  • How HIPAA audit and enforcement activities are now being increased and what you need to do to survive a HIPAA audit.
