This HIPAA 2018 changes and updates session will be addressing how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) need to get their HIPAA house in order as HIPAA has become fully enforced and the government is not using kid gloves anymore. It will even handle key updates under the Omnibus Principle, Trump administration and every other appropriate changes for 2018 and beyond. You will find an enormous level of dilemmas and risks for covered entities and business affiliates these days.
Brian will talk about unique activities from over 17 years of experience in working as an outsourced compliance auditor, specialist witness on multiple HIPAA instances and thoroughly describe how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information. More importantly, Brian will tell you how to limit those risks simply taking proactive steps and using most useful practices.
