Read Frequently Asked Questions

This HIPAA compliance training will focus on the Breach Notification Rules including the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA). Learn how to ensure compliance with data breach reporting requirements to avoid penalties.

Why Should You Attend:

New privacy and security regulations under HIPAA, reflecting the HITECH Act and GINA, are now effective and require all covered entities and business associates to have up-to-date policies and procedures, privacy notices, business associate agreements and conduct training.

The regulations have resulted in increased penalties for data breaches that could be a financial disaster for some organizations. Covered entities not only have to be in compliance themselves, they also need to make sure that their business associates are in compliance. Business associates and their subcontractors are now subject to rules that previously only applied to covered entities.

Topic Background:

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) imposes privacy and security requirements on all covered entities with regard to protected health information. The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) made a number of changes to the HIPAA privacy and security rules, as did the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA).

There is now increased oversight by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The HHS is required to investigate complaints if a preliminary review indicates there may have been willful neglect. The HHS has the ability to proceed directly to enforcement actions without first attempting to achieve voluntary compliance. Covered entities and business associates now have less discretion in determining whether a data breach has taken place. The burden is on the covered entity or business associate to demonstrate through a risk assessment that there is a low probability that protected health information has been compromised. The HHS has launched a new education initiative and set of online tools to provide practical tips on ways to protect protected health information when using mobile devices such as laptops, tablets, and smart phones.
