New Finalized HITECH Amendments to HIPAA
Friday, January 25, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM (PST)
Palo Alto, CA
This 90-minute webinar will help you review your HIPAA compliance policies, and procedures to see if you are prepared to meet the changes in the HIPAA privacy and security regulations that are expected to be finalized by the end of Summer, 2012 and go into effect just 60 days later.
Why Should You Attend:
New regulations around the release and accounting of electronic records are creating new burdens that your EHR and your medical records department must deal with. There are new patient rights and new provider obligations. You will even have to update your HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices to show how you support the new patient rights under HIPAA as amended by HITECH.
This 90-minute session will review the new regulations and discuss their effects on usual practices, as well as, what policies need to be changed and how. The presenter will explain what policies and evidence you need to produce if you are audited by the HHS Office of Civil Rights. Now that there is a legislative mandate to audit compliance, and a random audit plan well under way, you need to be prepared to respond to audit requests. It’s never been more important to review your HIPAA compliance and meet the new requirements.
