Product Description

Compliance With The Security Rule Has Been Required Since 2005, Many Entities Have Not Undertaken The Effort Necessary To Be In Compliance. Are You Among them?

The HIPAA Security Rule has become a new focus of enforcement efforts now under being pursued by the US Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights. With the HIPAA Security Rule, each entity must undertake a complete and thorough analysis of risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information, and implement the policies and procedures appropriate for that organization to mitigate risks as necessary. Every organization is different and what is appropriate for each entity can vary widely, depending on the systems used and how business is done.

The HIPAA Security Rule calls for written policies and procedures, and documentation of their application to show that the required information security management process is in place and effective. Audits now being performed randomly require the production of significant documentation to show the proper adoption and use of policies and procedures. Security is especially threatened today by the wave of new systems and technologies such as portable devices, smart phones, texting, and social networking. Both staff and patients want to use these technologies to improve patient care, but significant issues of information security may put some uses into non-compliance.

Join this enlightening session presented by expert speaker, Jim Sheldon-Dean who will walk you through the requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule, elements of a HIPAA security risk analysis, framework of security polices, typical policy considerations for laptops and portable devices and their security, HIPAA audit process and its results. Also you will get free tools to be used for policies and documentation and lot more.

Take a look at what Jim will cover:

  • HIPAA Security Rule enforcement is no longer being taken lightly, as recent enforcement actions indicate – the penalties for non-compliance will be discussed and recent enforcement action results will be presented.
  • The process of complying with the HIPAA Security Rule is one of establishing an information security management process that continues over time to manage risks as systems and threats change.
  • The top security issues found by HHS investigators during HIPAA compliance audits and as a result of breaches will be presented and discussed.
  • The necessary policies and procedures to govern the use of electronic information will be discussed, and tools for documenting compliance will be discussed.
  • How laptops and portable devices are used in health care will be discussed, and their security risks will be presented.
  • Strategies to mitigate the risks of portable technology will be presented.
  • The use of training and documentation to mitigate risks will be discussed, and training strategies will be explored.
