Product Description

 

New penalties for willful neglect of compliance are mandatory and start at $10,000 Minimum

The HITECH Act within the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) includes a number of changes to how the HIPAA regulations will be enforced and the penalties that will be applied.

HIPAA can now apply directly to individuals in cases of wrongful disclosure.

Add to this the fact that HIPAA compliance will now be actively audited by the Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights (OCR), and full compliance with HIPAA becomes a very serious issue.

Self-auditing your HIPAA compliance before OCR does it for you is now an essential part of the avoidance of these penalties.

The icing on the cake is that now state attorneys general can now also bring civil action in federal court under HIPAA.

Join compliance expert Jim Sheldon-Dean to find out what the new penalty structure is and how to best prepare to minimize the penalties for any violations that may occur. Learn the various deadlines involved as the new penalties go into effect so you can properly prepare for compliance
