Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will explain how to design and administer HIPAA monitoring and auditing programs to meet HIPAA requirements. This session will cover some of the most common exceptions under the Privacy Rule and include practical tips for demonstrating good faith compliance efforts. In addition, there will be discussion of next-generation technologies that can help covered entities and business associates detect and report inappropriate accesses and disclosures of electronic protected health information.

Why Should You Attend:

HIPAA ‘covered entities’ (providers, health plans, and clearinghouses) and ‘business associates’ should implement and maintain sound monitoring and auditing practices. Those practices should help covered entities and business associates avoid or reduce the risk of civil or criminal sanctions for HIPAA violations. The new leadership of the Department of Health and Human Services, Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has been very visible and vocal about the new HIPAA enforcement tone from the OCR.

This webinar will address aspects of the enforcement rule from a practical perspective; particularly the interpretation of ‘wilful neglect’ under the civil sanctions provision. In addition, the difference between a ‘breach’ and an ‘incident’ will be addressed.

The focus of monitoring and auditing efforts will vary, based on specific provisions of the HIPAA/HITECH laws. For example, the Privacy Rule requirements relate closely to behaviors of many different groups of employees, including clinicians, allied health practitioners, business office workers, information technology staff, volunteers and so on.

Periodic reports on the HIPAA compliance program should be provided to the governing body and senior management. This session will include examples of suggested reporting ‘metrics’ for those groups.

  • Key areas to monitor or audit to demonstrate ‘good faith’ compliance efforts
  • Difference between a ‘breach’ and an ‘incident’

Topic Background:

On January 25, 2013, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued the final HIPAA Omnibus Rule, which became effective on March 26, 2013 and required compliance by September 23, 2013. Modifications to the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Enforcement and Breach Notification Rules were included in the “Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act” (HITECH).

The final rule and HITECH requirements place more comprehensive HIPAA requirements on Business Associates and change the enforcement and penalty framework for HIPAA violations.
