Overview: This webinar will be addressing the ins and outs of identifying what

is and what is not PHI, proper ways to disclose this information, common sense

security methods, what we can and can't do under HIPAA relating to disclosures, and

how to properly investigate a breach (or a suspected breach). We will also be

addressing how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) need to get their

HIPAA house in order before the imminent audits occur.

It will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule and any other applicable

updates relating to protected health information Additional areas covered will be

texting, email, encryption, medical messaging, voice data and risk factors as they

relate to IT. The primary goal is to ensure everyone is well educated on what is myth

and what is reality with this law, there is so much misleading information all over

regarding the do's and don'ts with HIPAA -I want to add clarity for compliance


I will uncover myths versus reality as it relates to this very enigmatic law based on

over 1000 risk assessments performed as well as years of experience in dealing

directly with the Office of Civil Rights HIPAA auditors. I will also speak to real

life litigated cases I have worked where HIPAA is being used to justify state cases of

negligence -THIS IS BECOMING A HUGE RISK! In addition, this course will cover the

highest risk factors for being sued as well as being audited (these two items tend to

go hand in hand).

Why should you Attend: Are you clear on what constitutes identifiable health

information vs none identifiable health information? It can be very confusing and

frustrating to say the least. Since the HIPAA Omnibus Final ruling, the Federal

government has expanded the definition of what constituted PHI.

Is your staff trained to understand the new risks and definitions?

Do you have written policy in place relating to this?

Do you have an affective HIPAA compliance program?

New laws and funding mean increased risk for both business associates and covered


HIPAA Omnibus -Do you know what's involved and what you need to do?

What does Omnibus mean for covered entities and business associates?

Why should you be concerned?

Court cases that are changing the landscape of HIPAA and patient's ability to sue!


It is important to understand the new changes going on at Health and Human Services as

it relates to enforcement of HIPAA for both covered entities and business associates

as it relates to what we need to do as compliance officers.You need to know how to

avoid being low hanging fruit in terms of audit risk as well as being sued by

individuals who have had their PHI wrongfully discloses due to bad IT or internal

administrative practices.
