HIPAA Training for the IT Manager
March 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am CDT$139
This webinar will be addressing how IT managers (and HIPAA Security 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 for 2019. Areas also 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 regarding the do’s and don’ts with HIPAA – I want to add clarity for compliance officers and what you guys need to do and how to best implement your HIPAA program based on over 18 years of personal experience working with Federal auditors, state auditors, and corporate auditors.
We will go through multiple scenarios that are commonly faced by compliance officers and how to manage these situations
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: Join me in this in depth 90-minute webinar where we will get into the nitty-gritty about the roles and responsibilities of a HIPAA Compliance Officer
Do you have an affective HIPAA compliance program? Do you know what needs to be done to satisfy the requirements?
