HIPAA compliance was never easy, and is getting even more complicated. Though HIPAA rules have been around for a long time, many organizations are only now ensuring that they have done all that is necessary for compliance. Putting off compliance carries huge risks since there are fines for willful neglect of compliance (including ignorance of the rules) that begin at $50,000 for serious infractions.
With the implementation of new HIPAA regulations coupled with increased enforcement and audit activity, healthcare organizations need to seriously review their compliance and also make sure they have the proper procedures, policies, and forms in place. HIPAA privacy officers have a crucial role to play by renewing their compliance activities and reviewing documentation to ensure that they can meet the challenges of the new rules, and avoid penalties and breaches for compliance violations.
Join this informative session with compliance expert Jim Sheldon-Dean to get an intensive training in HIPAA Privacy Rule compliance. Learn what is new in the regulations and what requires to change and to be addressed for compliance by covered entities and business associates. Get a deeper understanding of enforcement and audits, and how privacy regulations are related to security and breach regulations. In addition, learn ways to respond to privacy and security breaches, and the ways to prevent them with numerous references and examples.
