This 3-hr virtual seminar on the New Changes to the HIPAA Regulations will discuss the details of changes, how these changes will affect your organization and your Business Associates, new penalties and enforcement of HIPAA.

Why Should You Attend:

The HIPAA rules for Privacy and Security of Protected Health Information are undergoing significant expansion, with new requirements, fines, and penalties, and a new enforcement effort. New changes have been finalized and will be going into effect shortly (early 2012), while others have been proposed and will be finalized over the next year or two.

In this 3-hr training we will discuss:

  • The new regulations and their effects on usual practices, as well as what policies need to be changed and how.
  • The 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 random audit plan under development, you need to be prepared to respond to audit requests.
  • The features that must be available in EHR systems and the questions to ask system vendors will be described.  The processes for responding to requests for copies of electronic records and accountings of disclosures will be related to the regulations that require them.
  • The role of business associates who maintain or support your EHR will be discussed, and the extension of the accounting out to them by way of their use of Designated Record Set data will be explored, including potential necessary changes to business associate agreements.

This course will help health information professionals understand what they have to do, and when, and what to keep in mind as they move forward, in order to be prepared for compliance with the new regulations. It will provide a comprehensive look at the changes in the law and prepare attendees for the process of incorporating the changes into how they do business in their facilities.
