Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar training will discuss changes with the Health and Human Services in regards to the enforcement of the HIPAA laws already on the books and new risks specific to business associates. It will also discuss factors that might cause an unwanted visit or letter from the Office of Civil Rights and how to prepare for the audit and deal with federal and state laws.

Why Should You Attend:

  • Are you on the hot seat for a HIPAA audit? How do you know?
  • Are you prepared to protect your practice or business?
  • What factors might spurn a HIPAA audit? Are you doing these things?

This webinar will go over steps to take to avoid an audit or survive an audit. The instructor will thoroughly explain how patients can now get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information (which leads to more audits).

The session will address how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) 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 2016 and beyond.

With the growing number of issues and risks for covered entities and business associates these days, this webinar will help attendees identify ways to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.
