Why should you attend?

Confused about all of the misinformation relating to HIPAA, what you can and can’t do?

Let's get  those questions FINALLY answered for you once and for all!

There is unfortunately a lot of confusion about transmissions of protected health information and what we as business associates and covered entities need to do and what we SHOULD NOT do!

Join Brian Tuttle in this 90-minute webinar as we discuss the do’s and don’ts regarding texting and emailing along with any other sorts of transmissions of protected health information!

It is important to understand the new changes going on at Health and Human Services as it relates to enforcement of HIPAA for both covered entities and business associates as it relates to portable devices, texting, emailing, and transmission in general of protected health information (PHI). 

You need to know how to avoid being low hanging fruit in terms of audit risk as well as being sued by individuals who have had their PHI wrongfully discloses due to bad IT practices. 

Brian has also been expert witness on multiple court cases where a business or medical practice is being sued for not doing their due diligence to minimize risk.

These day’s trial attorney’s pose a higher risk than the Federal government!
