This 90-minute webinar will be going into detail regarding your practice (or business) information technology and how it relates to the HIPAA/HITECH Security Rule and securing PHI in transmission – what is required and what is myth… I will go through multiple examples and specific scenarios and offer simple common-sense solutions. I will also discuss the do’s and don’ts relating to encryption and updated bulletins provided by the Office for Civil Rights.

Areas covered will be texting, email, encryption, medical messaging, voice data, personal devices, and risk factors. 

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 for Civil Rights HIPAA auditors.   

I will speak on specific experiences from over 18 years of experience working as an outsourced compliance auditor, and expert witness on multiple HIPAA cases in state law, 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.

Don’t always believe what you read online about HIPAA, especially as it relates to encryption and IT, there are a lot of groups selling more than is necessarily required.

Areas Covered:-

  • Updates for 2024
  • Telemedicine
  • BYOD
  • Encryption (is it mandatory?)
  • Patients’ Rights to Unencrypted Communications
  • Policies regarding personal devices
  • Portable devices – best practices
  • Doctors and texting
  • Practical solutions
  • Business associates and the increased burden
  • Emailing of PHI
  • Texting of PHI
  • Federal Audit Process

Why Should You Attend:-

Confused about all the misinformation relating to HIPAA, what you can and can’t do?

Let me get those questions FINALLY answered for you once and for all! 

What is myth and what is reality?

There is a lot of confusion about transmissions of protected health information what business associates and covered entities need to do and what we SHOULD NOT do! 

Join me in this 90-minute webinar as we discuss the do’s and don’ts regarding texting and emailing along with any other sorts of transmissions of protected health information!

It is important to understand the new changes going on at Health and Human Services as it relates to the enforcement of HIPAA for both covered entities and business associates as it relates to portable devices, texting, emailing, and transmission in general of protected health information (PHI). 

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 disclosed due to bad IT practices. 

I have also been an expert witness on multiple court cases where a business or medical practice is being sued for not doing their due diligence to minimize risk.

These day trial attorneys pose a higher risk than the Federal government!

Who Will Benefit:-

  • Practice managers
  • Any business associates who work with medical practices or hospitals (i.e. billing companies, transcription companies, IT companies, answering services, home health, coders, attorneys, etc)
  • MD’s and other medical professionals
