New Guidance on De-Identifying Protected Health Information under HIPAAfrom Roger Steven
This webinar will be addressing the ins and outs of identifying what is and what is not PHI, proper ways to disclose this information, common sense security methods.
what we can and can't do under HIPAA relating to disclosures, and how to properly investigate a breach (or a suspected breach). We will also be addressing how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) need to get their HIPAA house in order before the imminent audits occur.
It will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule and any other applicable updates relating to protected health information Additional areas covered will be texting, email, encryption, medical messaging, voice data and risk factors as they relate to IT. The primary goal is to ensure everyone is well educated on what is myth and what is reality with this law, there is so much misleading information all over regarding the do's and don'ts with HIPAA -I want to add clarity for compliance officers.
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. I will also speak to real life litigated cases I have worked where HIPAA is being used to justify state cases of negligence -THIS IS BECOMING A HUGE RISK! In addition, this course will cover the highest risk factors for being sued as well as being audited (these two items tend to go hand in hand).
Why you should Attend: Are you clear on what constitutes identifiable health information vs none identifiable health information? It can be very confusing and frustrating to say the least. Since the HIPAA Omnibus Final ruling, the Federal government has expanded the definition of what constituted PHI.
Is your staff trained to understand the new risks and definitions?
Do you have written policy in place relating to this?
Do you have an affective HIPAA compliance program? (from )
