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 as well as working directly with auditors used by Health and
Human Services and dispel myths vs realities. I will go over steps to take to avoid an audit or
survive an audit. I have also served as expert witness on legal cases involving HIPAA
violations, and I will thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for
wrongful disclosures of private health information (which leads to more audits).
More importantly I will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and
utilizing best practices.

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 and new risks
specific to business associates I will also be discussing factors might cause an unwanted visit
or letter from the Office of Civil Rights and how to prepare for the audit and deal with the
Feds and state laws.
