Road to HIPAA Compliance: How to Handle HIPAA and HITECH Security Breaches, Complaints, and Investigations
With the Enactment of the Modifications to HIPAA contained in the so-called HI-TECH Act and its implementing regulation, the Omnibus Rule, the law and DHHS have greatly expanded the importance of handling breaches properly. How covered entities handle security incidents, breaches, and complaints is one of the key areas that DHS audits for. In addition, it has imposed civil money penalties as high as $5.5 million for failure to handle HIPAA violations properly. Every entity has a security incident on occasion-maybe dozens a year. But which of them are actually breaches and which are reportable breaches? What should you do before reporting it to minimize liability? How do you respond to the investigation? How do you handle a complaint to minimize the chance that it will lead to an investigation and perhaps a civil money penalty? These and related questions are key to HIPAA compliance and to minimize potential liability.

Road to HIPAA Compliance: How to Handle HIPAA and HITECH Security Breaches, Complaints, and Investigations
This webinar will cover everything that you need to know about how to handle HIPAA security incidents, breaches, and complaints and the Department of Health and Human Resources Investigations thereof. Not all security incidents are breaches, but all breaches of confidentiality are within the broad ambit of security incidents. Privacy rule violations, such as failing to give a patient a copy of his or her medical records, may also constitute a breach as the $4.2 million fine assessed against Cignet Healthcare of Prince George's County, Maryland, dramatically proved. Handling an investigation properly is key to determining not only how to handle it to mitigate any harm and to take action to prevent it from happening again but also to determine whether it is reportable to affected individuals and to DHHS.

What Does the Term "Reasonable and Appropriate" Mean under HIPAA? And How Do You Achieve It?
HIPAA requires covered entities (health plans, health care clearinghouses, Medicare prescription drug sponsors and providers that transmit one or more of the standard transactions [primarily reimbursement information] electronically and business associates [those who perform a service for a covered entity or for another business associate]) to select reasonable and appropriate security measures to safeguard individually identifiable health information. Those who fail to do so may face seven-figure civil money penalties imposed by the Department of Health and Human Services.
