3-Hour Virtual Seminar on HIPAA Compliance for 2019 -Clear, Complete, Step-by-Step

  November 19, 2018  
Netzealous LLC - MentorHealth, Online


This webinar will demonstrate how Covered Entities and Business Associates can comply calmly, confidently and completely with the HIPAA Rules

The secret is -HIPAA Rules are easy and routine to follow -when you know the steps. Paul Hales will capture your attention with visual presentations and interactive learning exercises that take mystery and fear out of HIPAA Compliance. 

Why should you Attend: Organizations of all types and sizes continue to struggle needlessly with HIPAA Compliance. For example, HIPAA Risk Analysis -Risk Management is the basis of the HIPAA Compliance Program of every Covered Entity and Business Associate.

But mandatory HIPAA Compliance Audits conducted by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR), the HIPAA enforcement arm of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), found 94% of Covered Entities failed the Risk Management Audit and 87% failed the Risk Analysis Audit. And every audited Covered Entity knew well in advance that it was on the short list to be audited, had completed pre-audit questionnaires and knew the exact questions it would be asked and documentation to be provided (audit protocols).
