Product Description

Make sure you're in compliance before HHS OCR knocks on the door.

Covered entities that use electronic health records (EHRs) will need to meet new access and disclosure rules and all kinds of business associates will need to establish compliance programs.

The regulations include new requirements for audits by the US Department of Health and Human Services and mandatory penalties in the event of willful neglect of the regulations.

Make sure you're in the know. Join EHR and HIPAA expert Jim Sheldon-Dean for this 60-minute look at what policies need to be changed and how to change them. Jim will discuss how disclosures must be tracked in an EHR, and review the various ways patient records can be supplied electronically. Jim will also show you what policies and evidence you need to produce if the HHS Office of Civil Rights audits you.

PLUS: Jim will explain what a Business Associate needs to do differently under the new regulations, including providing a policy framework for information security.

Here's what you'll learn:

  • The new regulations change the way individuals have access to their records, and how much they can find out about who has accessed their records.
  • Individuals can now request certain restrictions on disclosures that you must honor.
  • There are new requirements for disclosers of health information to apply "minimum necessary" standards.
  • Business Associates: Health Information Exchanges, Regional Health Information Exchanges, and e-Prescribing gateways are now included
  • Business Associates have new requirements to comply with HIPAA privacy protections and security safeguards and are subject to enforcement and penalties directly by HHS.
  • New limitations on marketing and fund-raising may change how entities can reach out to individuals.
