The Problem Addressed by this Webinar: HIPAA Covered Entities and Business Associates of all types and sizes are at serious risk of health information breaches caused by aggressive criminal attacks and their own lack of attention to protective safeguards required by HIPAA. Admittedly the HIPAA regulations are difficult to read. They are written in a legalistic language and arranged in confusing order with frequent obscure and even inaccurate internal references. However, while the number of health information breaches grows rapidly, the number of private class action lawsuits based on those breaches is growing much faster. And government enforcement is also on the rise, in part to deal with medical identity theft, the fastest-growing and most lucrative type of identity theft in America today.

The Secret to HIPAA Compliance: The HIPAA Rules are a blueprint to prevent health information breaches. And there is a secret to HIPAA compliance – HIPAA Rules are easy to follow step-by-step when you know the steps.

Key Points: HIPAA compliance is a well-defined process to systematically identify and address risks to the privacy and security of protected health information (PHI). This webinar will explain the steps that make up that process using plain language and engaging diagrams.
