With increasing penalties, greater enforcement and a growing set of sources of business risks and liabilities, healthcare organizations and companies that support healthcare organizations must gain a solid understanding of the HIPAA Privacy and Security and Breach Notification Rules.
While it is fairly well known that these rules provide for the privacy and security of Protected Health Information (PHI), the details of the laws: who is covered, what is covered, what is required, etc., is not well understood by either healthcare providers, their business associates or subcontractors.
This session is offered as a 90-minute webinar using the GoToWebinar platform. The open format encourages questions during and after the session.
Key topics, common to the analysis of any law/regulation are:
- Why Do These Laws & Regulations Exist?
- Who Is Covered?
- What Is Covered?
- What Is Required Or Prohibited?
- Who Enforces?
- What Happens If I Don’t Comply?
