Understanding the HIPAA’s requirements for safeguarding PHI

For an organization that needs to show HIPAA compliance; having the proper policies and procedures in place is as important as ensuring that it is providing the appropriate patient rights and controls on its uses and disclosures of Protected Health Information (PHI). It makes sense for an organization that is the subject of a compliance review or is being audited, to demonstrate to the government that it has both the documentation necessary for safeguarding patient PHI, as well as the ability to show how it is addressing all of the required security safeguards.

Required: A good understanding of the fundamentals

To do all this, a healthcare practice, business or organization needs to have a good grasp of the fundamentals of what it takes to protect PHI. It also needs to make sure that its current safeguards are sufficient to withstand government scrutiny. Another reason for the need for understanding what requirements need to be met to safeguard PHI is that there has been a substantial increase in HIPAA data breaches

The ways by which an organization can do all these will be the topic of a webinar from MentorHealth, a leading provider of professional trainings for the healthcare industry. To enroll for this webinar, just log on to http://www.mentorhealth.com/control/w_product/~product_id=800871LIV....

The speaker at this webinar is Jay Hodes, who is President and Founder, Colington Security Consulting, LLC. He will offer a thorough understanding of all the requirements that need to be put in place for protecting the health records that participants’ organizations maintain, create, transmit, or store. This course will offer a Covered Entity or Business Associate a solid understanding of what needs to be in place when it comes to complying with all of the HIPAA’s regulations.
