Why Should you Attend
It is important to understand the new changes going on at Health and Human Services as it relates to enforcement of HIPAA for both covered entities and business associates. You need to know how to avoid being low hanging in terms of audit risk as well as being sued by individuals who have had their PHI wrongfully disclosed due to bad IT practices. I have been an expert witness on multiple court cases where a business or medical practice is being sued for not doing their due diligence to minimize risk.

Areas Covered
  • Risk factors for portable media
  • What should you do if you receive an audit letter
  • Court cases I've been part of relating to bad IT practices
  • Examples
Who can Benefit
  • Practice Managers
  • Any business associates who work with medical practices or hospitals (i.e. billing companies, transcription companies, IT companies, answering services, home health, coders, attorneys, etc)
  • MD's and other medical professionals
Topic Background
HIPAA now has teeth and is being proactively enforced. Patients are now learning they can sue for wrongful disclosure utilizing state law (as encouraged by Federal law). It is critical to understand and have a grasp on your portable devices, texting, email, etc. Portable devices are becoming necessary and convenient but security measures must be in place to avoid future headaches with the Federal government or individual litigation.
