Overview: The objectives of this course will be to go over the specific risks associated with business associates as it relates to HIPAA compliance. I will uncover myths versus reality as it relates to this very enigmatic law based on over 1000 risk assessments performed as well as years of experience in dealing directly with the Office of Civil Rights HIPAA auditors. Times have changed and unfortunately many businesses are losing clients or unable to get new clients due to problems with their compliance program or lack of a compliance program. I will explain real life scenarios as well as best practices and excellent resources you can use to get your house in order before it's too late.
I will speak on specific experiences from over 17 years in working as an outsourced compliance auditor, 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 and how this ALSO applies to business associates. More importantly I will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.
Why should you Attend:
Protect your business
Business associates are now required to comply directly with the HIPAA legislation
Many businesses are losing clients or unable to get clients because of compliance issues
We will be discussing the changes taking place in Washington, DC with the Health and Human Services in relating to business associates and the importance of getting in front of this law rather than waiting until it's too late. I will also be discussing factors might cause an unwanted visit or letter from the Office of Civil Rights and how to prepare for the audit and deal with the Feds - In addition, we will discuss the dangers and liability under HIPAA for being sued. These day's trial attorney's pose a higher risk than the Federal government.
