There are major changes to HIPAA set forth by the Federal government whereby patients can receive remedies for HIPAA violations! Omnibus has changed the HIPAA landscape for good! State laws are now in place increasing liability for patient remedies! This once rarely enforced law has changed and you need to know what's going on! What factors might spurn a HIPAA audit? ...are you doing these things? We will be discussing some of the changes taking place in Washington with the Health and Human Services in regards to the enforcement of the HIPAA laws already on the books. I will go over some of the new changes affecting covered entities and business associates and what factors might get your practice or business sued (or audited). I will also be discussing factors might cause an unwanted visit or letter from the Office of Civil Rights and how to prepare for the audit and deal with the Feds

Why should you attend this webinar?

This lesson 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 and any other applicable updates for 2016 and beyond. 
There are an enormous amount of issues and risks for covered entities and business associates these days as it relates to patients' ability to sue you and the Federal governments audit process. 
I will speak on specific experiences from over 17 years of experience in working as an outsourced compliance auditor, expert witness on HIPAA cases, and thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information. 
More importantly I will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices. I will uncover myths versus reality as it relates to this very enigmatic law based on over 1000 risk assessments performed as well as years of experience in dealing directly with the Office of Civil Rights HIPAA auditors. 
In addition, this course will cover the highest risk factors for being sued for wrongful disclosures of PHI and the manner in which patients are now using state laws to sue for wrongful disclosures.
