This 90-minute webinar will be addressing how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) need to get their HIPAA house in order as HIPAA HITECH is now fully enforced with bipartisan support and the government is not using kid gloves anymore.
It will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule, year two of the Biden administration, new congressional mandates, and any other applicable updates for 2023 and beyond along with changes relating to COVID-19, telemedicine, texting, emailing, the 21st Century Cures Act (Information Blocking), increased risk for Russian hacking, and changes relating to the Dobbs vs Jackson ruling.
There’s an enormous number of issues and risks for covered entities and business associates these days - we will speak to the most common violations and fines - and how to best avoid fines and headaches.
I will speak on specific experiences from over 21 years of experience working as an outsourced compliance auditor, and expert witness on multiple HIPAA cases, and thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information.
More importantly, I will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.
