Product Description

Are you complying with HIPAA Requirements? Find Out.

CMS just released a comprehensive rule that finalizes new HIPAA requirements introduced in the HITECH act. The omnibus final rule clarifies a wide range of issues involving the privacy and security of protected health information (PHI), including: the extent of privacy and security obligations of business associates; restrictions on the use of patient contact lists and other marketing using PHI; PHI security standards for mobile devices and social networking; updated notice procedures for unauthorized data breaches; and how penalties will be assessed for violations. The overall impact is that there is now much at stake for providers who aren’t diligently complying with HIPAA requirements.

Even before the final rules were issued, the HIPAA enforcement body, the Office of Civil
Rights, continues to gear up to enforce the final rule through audits and investigations. Recent settlements by that agency show that violators should expect both a long list of compliance items as well as a substantial fine.

This presentation will discuss highlights from the final rule as well as what to expect from an audit or investigation alleging noncompliance.
