Managing Risks under HIPAA – HITECH for 2017 and beyond

With HIPAA now being fully enforced and the government getting stricter and stricter about its implementation; practice or business or compliance officers need to be absolutely thorough about all the areas of HIPAA implementation. Given that there are enormous issues of risks that Covered Entities and their Business Associates need to address; the need to be fully aware of the changes that the Omnibus Rule has brought about for 2017 and beyond, along with other relevant updates, can never be overstated.

Knowing the ways of managing risks under HIPAA has become imperative for the following reasons:   

  • Omnibus has brought about major changes into HIPAA
  • HIPAA, which was once sparingly enforced; has now changed in a big way, and Covered Entities and Business Associates need to be fully aware of what the latest developments and requirements are
  • It is in their interest to be equipped with this knowledge, since this is the surest means to protect their practice or business
  • In addition, the various State laws in place have also been increasing liability for patient remedies
  • It is absolutely essential for compliance and practice managers to understand the factors that might trigger a lawsuit or a HIPAA audit. To do this, they need to clearly know if they are doing things right

Insights into HIPAA

A learning session from MentorHealth, a leading provider of professional trainings for the areas of healthcare, will clarify on all these areas. At this webinar, Brian Tuttle, a Certified Professional in Health IT (CPHIT), Certified HIPAA Professional (CHP), Certified Business Resilience Auditor (CBRA) with over 15 years’ experience in Health IT and Compliance Consulting; will be the speaker.

HIPAA changes for 2017 and more

The aim of this course is to thoroughly discuss the HIPAA changes for 2017, in regard to the enforcement of the HIPAA laws already on the books. Brian will also offer detailed discussions on the audit process, as well as some current events regarding HIPAA cases, both in courtrooms and from live audits.

This lesson will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule and any other applicable updates for 2017 and beyond. There are an enormous amount of issues and risks for covered entities and business associates these days.

This presentation is a result of specific experiences that Brian has gained from over 17 years of working as an outsourced compliance auditor, expert witness on multiple HIPAA cases. He will offer complete and clear explanation of how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information. And of course, participants will also walk away with an understanding of how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.

This webinar will cover the following areas:

  • Updates for 2017
  • Fines
  • Portable Devices
  • Real Life Audits and Litigated cases
  • Business Associates and the increased burden
  • Breach Notification
  • Paperwork that needs to be updated
  • Risk Factors

Needless to say, anyone involved in any aspects of HIPAA compliance, such as Practice Managers, any Business Associates who work with Medical Practices or Hospitals (i.e. Billing Companies, Transcription Companies, IT Companies, Answering Services, Home Health, Coders, Attorneys, etc.), and MD's and other Medical Professionals will gain in a big way from this webinar.
