AudioEducator Helps Your Practice Meet New Compliance Requirements!
HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) was enacted by Congress to protect sensitive patient data. The act includes new HIPAA guidelines, such as privacy, security and breach notification rules, designed to prevent unauthorized disclosure of protected health information. Because these standards encourage the widespread use of electronic data interchange, HIPAA enables better access to health insurance, reduces fraud and abuse, and lowers the overall cost of health care.
New updates to the HIPAA regulations contain numerous changes based for the most part on The HITECH Act, which clarifies what companies need to do with health data. Additionally, with the recent adoption of "HIPAA Omnibus Rule" by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) many changes have occurred to existing privacy, security, and breach notification requirements. These new HIPAA rules have changed several HIPAA guidelines and increased the penalties for HIPAA violations. If your organization is not ready, the HIPAA rules have more bite in the form of significantly higher fines -- including minimum fines of $10,000 per day for willful neglect of compliance.
AudioEducator’s audio conference on HIPAA is designed to help you with practical, easy-to-apply advice to take your HIPAA compliance to the next level.
