As you must be aware, the HIPAA Privacy Rule aims to protect the privacy of individually identifiable health information, while the HIPAA Security Rule is responsible for setting national standards to secure electronic protected health information. Legal exposure under these rules is based on evidence and proof of willful neglect by a HIPAA-covered entity or business associate.
This session by healthcare compliance expert John E. Steiner will cover various practical, operational and educational steps for HIPAA ‘covered entities’ and business associates. He will explore steps that are designed to help you focus on what the members of your workforce can and should do to be HIPAA compliant. When followed in a proper way, many of these steps tend to reduce the legal risk your organization may otherwise get by violating HIPAA standards.
Further, you will receive various preventative tips and get examples where enforcement focus has been more intensive. There will be a detailed discussion on key sections of ‘Resolution Agreements’ between the Office for Civil Rights and covered entities to help you appreciate the steps that are more important than others to demonstrate good faith compliance. Plus, you will receive HIPAA scenario planning and recommended scripted actions or responses.
The webinar is an effective combination of key elements of the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules with practical, ‘hands on’ advice for your employees and other workforce. The approach, designed by Mr. Steiner himself, is based on his years of working as a Chief Compliance Officer and Privacy Official in 3 large healthcare systems.
