HIPAA NOW HAS TEETH! Be prepared for what's new in 2019! Protect your practice or business! What factors might spurn a HIPAA audit? are you doing these things? Why are the Feds enforcing after all these years?

It is important to understand the new changes going on at Health and Human Services as it relates to enforcement of HIPAA for both covered entities and business associates as it relates to portable devices, texting, and emailing of PHI. You need to know how to avoid being low hanging in terms of audit risk as well as being sued by individuals who have had their PHI wrongfully discloses due to bad IT practices.

I have also been expert witness on multiple court cases where a business or medical practice is being sued for not doing their due diligence to minimize risk.

Why you should Attend:

This webinar will uncover myths versus reality as it relates to this very enigmatic law based on over 600 risk assessments performed as well as years of experience in dealing directly with the Office of Civil Rights HIPAA auditors.

This webinar will also speak about real life audits conducted by the Federal government (I've been on both sides of these audits) what your highest risks are for being fined (some of the risk factors may surprise you). In addition this course will cover the highest risk factors for being sued for wrongful disclosures of PHI and the manner in which patients are now using state laws to sue for wrongful disclosures.

Don't always believe what you read online about HIPAA, especially as it relates to what the government expects, I will uncover what is and isn't considered a high risk.
