This 90-minute webinar will be discussing how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) need to get their HIPAA house in order as HIPAA HITECH is now fully enforced with bipartisan support and the government is not using kid gloves any more.

It will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule, Trump (or Biden) administration, new congressional mandates, and any other applicable updates for 2021 and beyond along with changes relating to COVID19 and Information Blocking under the Cures Act (do’s and don’ts).

There are an enormous amount of issues and risks for covered entities and business associates these days – we will speak to the most common violations and fines – and how to best avoid fines and headaches.

The speaker will use specific scenarios from over 20 years of her experience working as an outsourced compliance auditor, expert witness on multiple HIPAA cases, and thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information. More importantly, she will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.

Areas Covered:-

  • Updates for 2021 and beyond
  • COVID19 and HIPAA Changes
  • Cures Act - Information Blocking (do's and don'ts)

  • Texting and Emailing - new guidelines
  • Politics and HIPAA
  • Changes under OCR Director and congress
  • New Definition of protected health information
  • Real-life audits and litigated cases
  • Business associates and the increased burden
  • Breach notification

Learning Objectives:-

  • What changes under the Biden administration and other congressional mandates can we expect?
  • What changes have occurred relating to COVID19 and HIPAA and will they be permanent?
  • What are the changes regarding the Cures Act and Information Blocking? State laws are now in place increasing liability for patient remedies!
  • What factors might spurn a lawsuit or a HIPAA audit? …are you doing these things?
  • Why are the Feds enforcing after all these years?

We will be discussing 2021 changes taking place in Washington with the Health and Human Services regarding the bipartisan backed enforcement of the HIPAA laws already on the books (as well as some detailed discussions on the audit process) and some current events regarding HIPAA cases (both in courtrooms and from live audits).

Participants will understand what’s involved in a full BCP program and have insights based upon field experience that can be applied to Internal Audit work and BCP.
