HIPAA Breach Notification Rule - What you must do to Comply?


Jonathan P. Tomes , J.D., is Keynote Speaker at ComplianceKey. He is a health care attorney practicing in the greater Kansas City. He is a nationally recognized authority and expert witness on the legal requirements for health information. Jon has written more than 60 books, including the following: How to Handle HIPAA and HITECH Act Breaches, Complaints, and Investigations: Everything You Need to Know; The Compliance Guide to HIPAA and the DHHS Regulations, now in its sixth edition, along with its accompanying HIPAA Documents Resource Center CD, ; Electronic Health Records: A Practical Compli........

Overview

With the HITECH Act and Omnibus Rule's requirement to report certain breaches of healthcare information privacy and security, covered entities and their business associates must now report certain HIPAA breaches to the Department of Health and Human Services. Some of these reports have resulted in seven-figure fines civil money penalties (CMP) but failure to self-report is itself a violation that can result in a CMP. Knowing how to avoid breaches that could result in a CMP and/or result in required reporting is critical.

Why should you attend this webinar?

The presenter, a healthcare attorney, author, and consultant has successfully represented eight covered entities who have been investigated for an alleged HIPAA violation. He has also consulted for more than one thousand covered entities and business associates from major federal and state agencies and major hospitals and physician practices to one-clinician offices. He has literally wrote the book on HIPAA compliance and has been an expert witness in HIPAA court cases. As a former malpractice attorney, an AV-rated (preeminent and highly rated for ethics by the Martindale-Hubble legal rating organization) attorney and former military judge, he is uniquely qualified to guide the healthcare industry into cost-effective HIPAA compliance.

Not knowing and following the disclosure rules can be costly. Boston Medical Center, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and Massachusetts General Hospital settled for $999,000 for the unauthorized disclosure of patient information during an ABC television filming. Previously, New York Presbyterian Hospital had settled in association with the filming of "NY Med" and Allergy Associates of Hartford, P.C., settled for improperly disclosing patient information to a reporter. Memorial Hermann Health System agreed to pay $2.4 million for adding a patient's name to the title of a press release. Complete P.T., Pool & Land Physical Therapy, Inc. settled a violation of the marketing rules for $25,000 for posting testimonials from patients without their authorization.
Further, failure to properly handle complaints and investigations can be costly as well. Cignet Healthcare suffered a $4.3 million civil money penalty for not handling patient complaints about lack of access to their records and not handling the subsequent HHS investigation properly.
