Why Should You Attend:

HIPAA is about mitigating the risk of a potential breach of patient health information maintained by your organization. Understanding risk begins with compliance of HIPAA Security and Privacy rules. This involves not only ensuring you have the appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards in place, but you also have the proper policies and procedures in place that cover implementation specifications. Find out if your organization has the proper procedures in place for patient privacy rights and controls on your uses and disclosures of protected health information. If audited or the subject of a compliance review you will be required to show the government you have all the necessary policy and procedure documentation in place to address all the required safeguards.

Attendees will leave the course clearly understanding all the requirements that must be in place for the HIPAA Security Rule and how to demonstrate compliance with all the required and addressable safeguards.
