Overview:This lesson will be addressing how law firms who work with protected health information need to get their HIPAA house in order as HIPAA is now fully enforced and the government is not using kid gloves any more. It will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule and any other applicable updates for 2017 and beyond. There are an enormous amount of issues and risks for covered entities and business associates these days as it relates to patients'ability to sue and the Federal governments audit process.
I will speak on specific experiences from over 17 years of working as an outsourced compliance auditor, expert witness on HIPAA cases, and thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information. More importantly I will show you how to limit risks to your firm by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices. Why should you Attend: There are major changes to HIPAA set forth by the Federal government whereby patients can receive remedies for HIPAA violations and business associates (i.e. law firms) must now comply directly with HIPAA.
