With the recent implementation of new HIPAA regulations in the HIPAA Omnibus Update of 2013, healthcare organizations are reviewing their compliance and making sure they have the proper policies, procedures, and forms in place. HIPAA Privacy Officers have been renewing their compliance activities and reviewing their documentation to make sure they can meet the challenges of the new rules and avoid breaches and penalties for compliance violations.
This session is designed to provide an intensive, one and a half-day training in HIPAA Privacy Rule compliance, covering:
What’s new in the regulations
What needs to change in your organization
What needs to be addressed for compliance by covered entities and business associates
What are the most important privacy issues
What can happen when compliance is not adequate
This seminar will also explain audits and enforcement, and how privacy regulations relate to security and breach regulations, as well as responding to privacy and security breaches and ways to prevent them. Numerous references and sample documents will be provided.
