HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) Virtual Workshop Audit Lessons: Learn the Top Priorities to Strengthen Your Compliance – ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN-(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Webinar “4-Hour Virtual Workshop on HIPAA Audit Lessons – Learn the Top Priorities to Strengthen Your Compliance” has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com supply.

This workshop teaches the main key lessons from these audits and how to implement steps to strengthen your HIPAA compliance and pass an audit.

Too many healthcare organizations believe they are in control of HIPAA compliance, but recent HIPAA compliance audits show that non-compliance is widespread across the country.

The Office for Civil Rights (OCR), the HIPAA enforcement arm of the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), recently announced alarming results from Phase 2 of HIPAA compliance audits of covered entities. 87% failed the risk analysis audit and 94% failed the risk management audit! Further investigations are underway and no penalties have yet been announced. Business Associates were also audited and showed similar failure rates.

HIPAA enforcement, driven by Congress and public demand, is increasing dramatically. HIPAA Risk Analysis – Risk management is OCR’s highest priority for compliance and is required of all covered entities and business associates. And it should be at the heart of every healthcare organization’s HIPAA compliance program.

But HIPAA rules don’t explain how to do a risk analysis—risk management and government guidelines are muddled, confusing, and without practical help. Attend this session for a step-by-step review of how you can safely and confidently comply with this key HIPAA requirement.

The audits also revealed noncompliance with other basic HIPAA requirements of the Privacy Rule regarding the individual’s right of access to medical records, the Notice of Privacy Practices, and the Notice of Breach. Common misunderstandings about these requirements and how to comply with each will be explained.
