HIPAA Privacy Rule Primer — What the HIPAA Privacy Officer Needs to Know

This Webinar discusses the foundations of HIPAA and how they relate to the issues of today. The rules to be discussed encompass the full range of the HIPAA Privacy Rule, with particular focus on the areas that have seen changes in the rules, technologies, or practices that impact HIPAA compliance. Patient rights and controls on uses and disclosures have been in flux, HHS has issued guidance, and other regulations related to personal information have been enacted or modified. Healthcare entities face significant challenges with issues today that didn’t even exist a few years ago, such as insecure communications, Ransomware, and the E.U.’s GDPR, protecting all kinds of personal information. As opioid issues have spread, interactions with the SAMHSA 42 CFR Part 2 regulations on information relating to substance use disorders have taken center stage. There is no shortage of topics of interest to the HIPAA Privacy Officer.

This session will focus on understanding what are the issues that a HIPAA Privacy Officer faces, and what are the areas of HIPAA that are changing. While the rules have been in place for years now, the focus of their application has changed as technologies and practices have changed, and changes to the rules are on the horizon. In addition, there are changes in other regulations that interact with HIPAA requirements, and that require consideration in your planning. The session will discuss the latest topics of interest and describe how they relate to the regulations and their enforcement today.

HIPAA and The Medical Practice - Live Webinar

We have all heard and been exposed to HIPAA in the healthcare field, but do you really know what it means and exactly how it applies to you? This webinar provides an often-overlooked basic overview of the origins of HIPAA and the actual laws and statutes that make up the HIPAA Omnibus Rule. The speaker will then 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 the 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.
