HIPAA HITECH Changes 2021 - What's New?December 2, 2020 - CA US
Overview: This 90-minute webinar will be addressing 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. I will speak on specific experiences from over 20 years of experience in 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 I will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.
