HIPAA texting policy is undergoing changes. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has been implementing changes to enforcement of HIPAA for both Covered Entities and Business Associates vis-à-vis portable devices, texting, and emailing of Protected Health Information (PHI).

At this webinar, the expert, Brian Tuttle, will explain the areas relating to HIPAA and texting in healthcare, encryption, medical messaging, voice data, personal devices, and risk factors. Knowledge of these factors and knowing how to put them in the right perspective is important to avoid HIPAA penalties. Brian will help participants distinguish between myth and reality of this rather challenging law. This learning is the result of his having conducted over 1000 HIPAA risk assessments during the 18 years of his career, during which he has worked in various areas of health compliance.

Limiting audit risks

The most important learning that Brian will impart at this webinar is how participating organizations can limit their risks. They need to know what proactive steps to take, and which best practices to implement. He will show how to do these. The main objective is to help clear misconceptions in the minds of the participants regarding HIPAA texting and emailing. He will seek to remove confusions among Covered Entities and Business Associates about transmission of PHI.

The knowledge the expert at this webinar is going to offer on HIPAA texting and emailing will help CE's and BA's avoid audit risks and thus prevent them from being sued for wrongful disclosure of their PHI, which happens mainly due to bad IT practices.

Aimed at 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.), and MD's and other medical professionals; this webinar will cover the following areas:

o Updates for 2018

o BYOD

o Policies Regarding Personal Devices

o Portable Devices - Best Practices

o Doctors and Texting

o Practical Solutions

o Business Associates and the increased Burden

o Emailing of PHI

o Texting of PHI

o Federal Audit Process.
