Read Frequently Asked Questions

This HIPAA compliance webinar will describe the changes to HIPAA privacy and security regulations and discuss how HIPAA covered entities will have to change their related and policies to ensure compliance.

Why Should You Attend:

The HIPAA privacy and security regulations have changed in ways that affect every health care-related entity, from providers to insurers to business associates, and more. The HIPAA Privacy and Security Regulations have been significantly modified from the former practices and the new final rules are now in effect. Policies and procedures at HIPAA entities must be modified to match the changes in the rules.

This 90-minute webinar will review the new regulations and discuss their effects on usual practices. You will also learn what policies need to be changed and how. It will show what policies and evidence you need to produce if you are audited by the HHS Office of Civil Rights. Now that there is a legislative mandate to audit compliance, and a new random audit plan being implemented in 2014, you need to be prepared to respond to audit requests. It’s never been more important to review your HIPAA compliance and meet the new requirements. This session will describe the changes and the related policies that need modification for compliance with the new HIPAA rules.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • New regulations and their effects on usual practices as well as what policies need to be changed and how.
  • What policies and evidence you need to produce if you are audited by the HHS Office of Civil Rights.
  • The features that must be available in EHR systems.
  • How the new regulations change the way individuals have access to their records, and how much they can find out about who has accessed their records.
  • How Individuals can now request certain restrictions on disclosures that you must honor.
  • New requirements for Business Associates (BAs) to comply with HIPAA privacy protections and security safeguards and how BAs are subject to enforcement and penalties directly by HHS.
  • How new limitations on marketing and fund-raising may change and how entities can reach out to individuals.
  • How new HIPAA random audit program and penalty requirements for violations increase the need to make sure you are in compliance before HHS OCR knocks on the door.

Topic Background:

All kinds of covered entities and now business associates of covered entities and their subcontractors as well need to review their HIPAA compliance, policies, and procedures to see if they are prepared to meet the changes in the rules. Many business associates won’t even be aware they are now under the rules, and some subcontractors of business associates may not even be aware that they handle any protected health information and therefore now fall under the regulations.

New regulations around the release of electronic records and restrictions on disclosures are creating new burdens that your EHR and your medical records department must deal with. There are new patient rights and new provider obligations. You will even have to update your HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices to show how you support the new patient rights under HIPAA as amended by HITECH.

New regulations on marketing simplify determining what needs to have an authorization to be performed, but provide greater restrictions on the use of PHI. Fundraising, however, sees a loosening of restrictions that many institutions have ignored, but more stringent requirements for honoring opt-outs; policies and practices must be adjusted to the new rules.
