What is the Government Looking for In a HIPAA Audit


Training Options Duration: 90 Minutes
Tuesday, October 16, 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 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.

Why should you Attend:

This once relatively benign legislation is being fully enforced and the news is not good for

covered entities or business associates!

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
