HIPAA compliance is a big responsibility for your organization. In reality, HIPAA privacy and security is an organization-wide issue. Every employee in your community should know and understand their role in securing Protected Health Information (PHI). Because HIPAA is so complex, this one-hour session offers an overview of HIPAA from HIPAA expert Cheryl Hogan from Hinman Straub that will serve to refresh facilities’ knowledge of HIPAA and will also discuss changes that you should know about as an employer. The specific issues to be discussed include:

  • The basic requirements of HIPAA
    • Who is a Covered Entity?
    • Who is a Business Associate?
      • Business Associate Agreements
  • What is a Hybrid Entity?
  • State Confidentiality Requirements
  • Privacy Rule
    • To Whom Can Information be Disclosed?
  • Security Rule
    • Encryption!
  • Breach Notification Rule
  • Pitfalls/Recent Settlement Agreements
