Healthcare entities face significant challenges with issues today that didn’t even exist a few years ago, such as insecure communications, ransomware, and the EU’s GDPR protecting all kinds of personal information. In addition, there are changes in other regulations that interact with HIPAA requirements and require consideration in your planning. For example, as opioid issues have spread, interactions with the SAMHSA 42 CFR Part 2 regulations on information relating to substance use disorders have taken center stage. Plus, patient rights and controls on uses and disclosures have been in flux; HHS has issued guidance, and other regulations related to personal information have been enacted or modified.
Learn how you can keep up with the changes to HIPAA and be fully compliant with it in this information-packed audio conference by Jim Sheldon-Dean. Sheldon-Dean will discuss the foundations of HIPAA and how they relate to the issues of today. He will walk you through the rules that encompass the full range of the HIPAA Privacy Rule, with special focus on the areas that have seen changes in the rules, technologies, or practices that impact HIPAA compliance. Sheldon-Dean will explain the proper methods of documentation and training to ensure compliance and help avoid penalties.
Sheldon-Dean will bring you up to speed with the latest topics of interest, and describe how they relate to the regulations and their enforcement today. He will review the variety of forms entities can take under HIPAA and how they relate to one another; patient rights (such as access and amendment of information); how such rights are protected and enforced under HIPAA; and how uses and disclosures may take place in a wide variety of circumstances. He will also discuss hot topics such as sharing information with the family and friends of a patient when they’re involved with the patient’s care.
After attending this audio conference, whether you are a HIPAA expert or a newbie, you will be better placed to understand and adapt to the changes to HIPAA and related regulations in personal information privacy and security. You will understand the privacy and security regulatory issues most frequently encountered in day-to-day operation of health care entities.
