Product Description

Prepare for the HIPAA Rule Changes to Avoid Penalties in 2019

Healthcare entities face significant challenges with issues in 2019 that didn’t even exist a few years ago—such as insecure communications, portable devices, and ransomware, to name a few. And as opioid issues have spread, interactions with regulations on information relating to substance use disorders have taken center stage. Complying with HIPPA isn’t an option, but keeping up with the latest changes is definitely a challenge.

Join healthcare expert Jim Sheldon-Dean in this audio conference to prepare for the upcoming changes to HIPAA and related regulations—including those most frequently encountered by healthcare entities in their day-to-day operations today. Sheldon-Dean will walk you through important current topics, such as potential changes to the rules for 2019, and how healthcare communications are being transformed—especially by the use of mobile devices and texting. He will bring you up to speed with the updated 2018 HIPAA Audit Protocol, and discuss hot topics such as sharing information with family and friends of a patient when they’re involved with the patient’s care.

After attending this session, you will know what documentation needs to be on hand should your organization be selected for an audit or enforcement review, including methods for using the contents of the HIPAA Audit Protocol to build your own compliance plan. You’ll be aware of potential changes to the rules for 2019. Plus, you’ll be better equipped to protect the information of patients with substance use disorders.

  • The changes to HIPAA Accounting of Disclosures rules required by the HITECH Act
  • The changes that may be made to the Notice of Privacy Practices process

  • How HIPAA and 42 CFR Part 2 conflict and cooperate in protecting the information of patients with substance use disorders
  • How to use texting to communicate with patients regarding health information
  • How to use mobile devices properly to protect information and avoid HIPAA breaches
  • The most important considerations in preventing issues with ransomware
