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.
