What will I be able to do on completion?

HIPAA compliance is one of the most cited and least understood laws in the typical medical practice. Although HIPAA has been in place for decades, it has changed rapidly in the last ten years due to the rapid proliferation of technology in medicine.

In addition to these progressive changes, the law itself underwent a major overhaul in 2013 resulting in any practice that has not updated their HIPAA materials since that time being out of compliance. The speaker will highlight the major changes that must have been implemented after the 2013 HIPAA updates.

Thereafter, the attendee will learn the basic requirements for a Notice of Privacy Practices as well as when authorizations are and are not required for the use and disclosure of a patient's protected health information.

The latter half of the webinar will focus on identification of a breach and what the required process is to remedy a breach if it is determined one has occurred.

The federal Office for Civil Rights, the government entity tasked with enforcing HIPAA began a preliminary pilot program in 2015 to ensure a certain number of random compliance audits of Covered Entities.

The initial overview of HIPAA requirements and policies will help the attendee determine if his or her practice is compliant. Thereafter, the speaker will highlight what "red flags" the Office for Civil Rights looks for when determining whether to audit a practice and learn what to do in the event you are selected for a random audit.
