Master’s Program for the HIPAA Compliance Officer: Safeguarding Patient data and Implementing Privacy, Security, and Breach Regulations – 2020 Update
October 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am CDT$139
This session will review the scope of what must be done to stay in compliance with the HIPAA regulations as individual access comes into focus both as a right that is vigorously enforced, yet now limited in some ways by a new Federal court order.
Keeping up with these complex changes is essential to compliance with HIPAA access requirements. The session will prepare organizations for the impacts of likely rule changes in areas such as Accounting of Disclosures, the Notice of Privacy Practices, cell phone communications, and new technologies.
New rules expected for Accounting of Disclosures will be explored and their expected futures and impacts will be discussed, and impacts of changes to 42 CFR Part 2 and controls on information relating to substance use disorders will be explained. One potential impact is not a HIPAA change, but an increase in the demand for requests to exert rights to keep treatment secret from health plans, which could result from changes to the ACA.
This session will help practices prepare for the various changes and avoid the significant penalties (up to $1.7 million and beyond) for non-compliance.
