HIPAA Omnibus Update Means New Rights for Patients and New Restrictions on Providers

The HIPAA rules for Privacy and Security of Protected Health Information have new finalized requirements, significant changes to patient rights, modifications of marketing rules, a major change to how breaches of PHI are determined, and a new enforcement effort. The changes to the rules create new challenges for HIPAA entities, and new risks for non-compliance and penalties.

Besides, the former practice of USDHHS has been to audit compliance only in instances where a violation or breach was reported, the law now requires USDHHS to conduct a regular HIPAA compliance audit program. The new audit program is already underway and being expanded in 2013. With the far-reaching changes in the rules and the new enforcement and penalty levels, it’s never been more important to review your HIPAA compliance and meet the new requirements.

Let our expert presenter Jim Sheldon-Dean take you through the new regulations and their effects on usual practices. You will learn what policies and evidence you need to produce if you are audited by the HHS Office of Civil Rights.

You also get a rundown on the process to be used in determining whether or not a breach is reportable, how the new regulations change the way individuals have access to their records and much more.

Here’s just a sample of what you get:

  • Learn the simpler marketing rules that are required more often for an authorization
  • Get tips to prepare yourself in advance for the time when patients will be asking about their new rights of access and rights to restrict disclosures
  • Learn how the HIPAA rules have changed and how you may need to change your work pattern to keep up with them
  • Learn how having a good compliance process can help you stay compliant more easily
  • Find out what you'll need to have documented to survive an audit and avoid fines

Who should attend? Compliance Manager, HIPAA Officer, Chief Information Officer, Health Information Manager, Medical Office Manager, Medical Practice Lawyer, CFO, CEO, COO. Privacy Officer, Information Security Officer.
