A straightforward and practical approach for understanding the HIPAA Rule and its exceptions has become paramount now. Pro-active planning and implementation leads to an effective compliance program. Register for this session by John E. Steiner, Jr., Esq., CHC, to understand the difference between a ‘breach’ and incident involving protected health information.
This session will highlight the key elements of a ‘performance audit,’ which is used by the Office for Civil Rights, along with tips for identifying whether a HIPAA exception is available; a tool for distinguishing an incident from a breach; and a detailed discussion of the first phase of HIPAA audits, conducted for the Office for Civil Rights by the accounting firm KPMG.
This audio conference will focus on many of the steps and techniques that covered entities can take to demonstrate ‘pro-active’ compliance with the Privacy and Security Rules.
