Friday, November 22, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM (PST)
This training on HIPAA Omnibus rule will describe the changes and the related policies that need modification under the new rules, and explain the kinds of questions to expect and how to answer them best. Attendees will learn the best practices to prepare for the audit by the HHS Office of Civil Rights.
Why Should You Attend:
All kinds of covered entities and now, business associates of covered entities and their subcontractors as well, need to review their HIPAA compliance, policies, and procedures to see if they are prepared to meet the changes in the rules. Your policies and procedures will need to be updated, and your staff will need to be trained on the new rules and be ready to answer questions about the new rights correctly.
During this webinar, the new regulations will be reviewed and their effects on usual practices will be discussed, as well as what policies need to be changed and how.
