The amendment to the HITECH ACT became effective February 17, 2010. If you are a healthcare provider or business associate and you don’t understand the act or haven’t taken the steps every organization must take to comply, then attendance at our upcoming seminar, Avoid Penalties for not Protecting Health Records, on March 25 is a must.
Privacy breaches are increasing at an alarming rate – which can bring litigation and financial penalties to healthcare providers. As of January 2010, there have already been 35 reports of breaches affecting 500-plus individuals, resulting in 712,000 notices. Most of the reports were electronic PHI contained in a lost or stolen unencrypted media or portable device. If you aren’t 100% confident that your organization’s current HIPAA policies and procedures have properly covered all the bases, then attending this seminar is recommended.
IN THIS SEMINAR YOU WILL LEARN
• Complying with the HITECH Act
• How to establish an effective information security program
• Best practices to assess third party providers
• Provisions to include in third-party vendor contracts
• Potential fines/remedies in the event of non-compliance or breach
• How to understand your notification requirements
