Description

Overview

There has been a trend towards  higher settlements payments. There were 7 recent settlements over $1  million including $5.5 million, $3.9 million, and $2.75 million and 12  overall resolutions settlements. In 2017, there was continued HIPAA  enforcement with a number of new settlements announced and the trend  continues in 2018.

Roger Severino, the Director of OCR, has said  “enforcement is a key aspect of HIPAA” and organizations must embrace a  “new posture of preventive security.”

If your organization  experiences a HIPAA breach, OCR will be conducting an investigation and  requesting compliance policies and procedures, risk assessment reports  and training records. Find out how to prepare. The presenter for this  webinar has worked with organizations under investigation by OCR. 

Attendees  will leave the webinar clearly understanding of all the requirements  that must be in place for HIPAA and how to demonstrate compliance if  investigated.

Why should you attend this webinar?

If  your organization is the subject of an OCR breach investigation, you  will be required to respond to a data request letter providing details  about how the breach was caused, HIPAA training provided to the  workforce, documentation for safeguarding patient Protected Health  Information, and indicate how you addressed all required security  safeguards. This starts with the understanding the fundamentals of a  HIPAA and how you will be required to demonstrate your organization’s  compliance program.

This webinar will look at each step in the  breach investigation process. This includes defining what a breach is,  the penalty possibilities, and responding to the OCR Data Request  Letter. 

If your healthcare practice, business, or organization  needs to understand how to be prepared for to deal with a breach and  make sure your current safeguards are adequate and can withstand a  government investigation, please join us for this informative and  interactive course.
