Overview of the webinar

This 90-minute webinar will be addressing 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, Trump administration, new congressional mandates and any other applicable updates for 2019 and beyond.   

There are an enormous amount of issues and risks for covered entities and business associates these days – we will speak to the most common violations and fines – and how to best avoid fines and headaches. 

Brian will speak on specific experiences from over 18 years of experience in working as an outsourced compliance auditor, expert witness on multiple HIPAA cases, and thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information.  

More importantly Brian will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.

Who should attend?

 

  • Practice managers
  • MD’s and other medical professionals
  • Practice Managers Associations
  • Any business associates who work with medical practices or hospitals (i.e. billing companies, transcription companies, IT companies, answering services, home health, coders, attorneys, etc)

 

 

Why should you attend?

Join Brian in this 90-minute webinar to explore what’s new with HIPAA both from a regulation standpoint (new requirements) and an enforcement standpoint.

  • This once rarely enforced law has changed and you need to know what’s going on
  • Protect your practice or business
  • These day’s trial attorney’s pose a higher risk than the Federal government
  • What changes under the Trump administration can we expect
  •  State laws are now in place increasing liability for patient remedies
  •  What factors might spurn a lawsuit or a HIPAA audit? …are you doing these things
  •  Why are the Feds enforcing after all these years

We will be discussing 2019 changes taking place in Washington with the Health and Human Services regarding the enforcement of the HIPAA laws already on the books as well as some detailed discussions on the audit process and some current events regarding HIPAA cases (both in courtrooms and from live audits)
