Training Options Duration: 90 Minutes
Wednesday, September 19, 2018 | 10:00 AM PDT | 01:00 PM EDT

Overview: 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. 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.

This once rarely enforced law has changed and you need to know what’s going on!

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. I will also be
