How do attorneys and law firms bring about HIPAA compliance?

Any firm that is covered under HIPAA and is privy to Protected Health Information (PHI) needs to be aware of the new burden placed on Business Associates under the Omnibus Rule. This is so because patients can receive remedies for HIPAA violations, and law firms that handle PHI, ipso facto they become Business Associates, must now comply directly with HIPAA Omnibus Rule as part of the major changes to HIPAA set forth by the Federal government.

State laws, which are now in place, are increasing the liability for patient remedies. The HIPAA Omnibus Rule, which was rarely enforced, has now become a very strongly enforced stringent law. In these circumstances, protecting a business or practice has become contingent upon the knowledge of all these aspects.

Learn the ropes of HIPAA compliance for attorneys and law firms

In order to help Business Associates and Covered Entities get a thorough understanding of the new changes that have taken place under the Omnibus Rule and other updates that come into effect from 2016 onwards and will be effective for a much later time; MentorHealth, a leading provider of professional trainings for the healthcare industry, will be organizing a webinar.    

Brian Tuttle, a Certified Professional in Health IT (CPHIT), Certified HIPAA Professional (CHP), and Certified Business Resilience Auditor (CBRA) , who brings over 15 years’ experience in Health IT and Compliance Consulting, will be the speaker at this webinar. To enroll for this webinar, please log on to http://www.mentorhealth.com/control/w_product/~product_id=800883LIV....

Covering all aspects of HIPAA compliance

Brian will explore the reasons for which the Federal government is keen to enforce this law after all these years. He will explain how law firms who work with PHI need to get their HIPAA compliance right in the light of added stringency.

Another important learning that Brian will offer at this session is the major changes under the Omnibus Rule and any other applicable updates for 2016 and beyond. There are several issues at stake and risks for Covered Entities and Business Associates these days as the new rule heavily impacts patients' ability to sue and the Federal governments audit process.

Among the other issues that Brian will be taking up are:

  • Some of the changes taking place with the Health and Human Services (HHS) in regards to the enforcement of the HIPAA laws already on the books
  • Some of the new changes that will affect law firms dealing with PHI  
  • The factors that might cause an unwanted visit or letter from the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) and how to prepare for the audit and deal with the Federal government

He will explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information and will show how participants can limit risks to their firm by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.

The following areas will be covered at this webinar:

  • Updates for Omnibus
  • Patients suing – how does this work
  • Fines from HHS
  • Audit process
  • New patient legal remedies and how to lower risks
  • State laws and patient remedies
  • Portable devices
  • Emailing and texting
  • Business associates and the increased burden
  • Breach notification
  • Risk factors for being sued or audited
