Description

This 90-minute webinar will be addressing how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) need to get their HIPAA house in order as HIPAA HITECH is now fully enforced with bipartisan support and the government is not using kid gloves any more.

It will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule, Trump (or Biden) administration, new congressional mandates and any other applicable updates for 2021 and beyond along with changes relating to COVID19 and Information Blocking under the Cures Act (do’s and don’ts). There are an enormous amount of issues and risks for covered entities and business associates these days - we will speak to the most common violations and fines - and how to best avoid fines and headaches.

I will speak on specific experiences from over 20 years of experience in working as an outsourced compliance auditor, expert witness on multiple HIPAA cases, and thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information.

More importantly I will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.

Why you should Attend:

Join me in this 90-minute webinar to explore what's new with HIPAA both from a regulation standpoint (new requirements) and an enforcement standpoint.

This once rarely enforced law has changed and you need to know what's going on! Protect your practice or business! These day's trial attorney's pose a higher risk than the Federal government!

What changes under the Trump or Biden administration and other congressional mandates can we expect? What changes have occurred relating to COVID19 and HIPAA and will they be permanent?

What are the changes regarding the Cures Act and Information Blocking? State laws are now in place increasing liability for patient remedies! What factors might spurn a lawsuit or a HIPAA audit? …are you doing these things?

Why are the Feds enforcing after all these years? We will be discussing 2021 changes taking place in Washington with the Health and Human Services regarding the bipartisan backed enforcement of the HIPAA laws already on the books (as well as some detailed discussions on the audit process) and some current events regarding HIPAA cases (both in courtrooms and from live audits).
