Top HIPAA Compliance Priorities”, on July 6

Fremont, CA: Expert on HIPAA Privacy, Security, Breach notification and Enforcement Rules, Paul R. Hales, will be the expert at an hour-long webinar that MentorHealth, a leading provider of professional trainings for all the areas of healthcare, is organizing on July 6.

The aim of this webinar, “Business Associates 2018 - 5 Top HIPAA Compliance Priorities”, is to offer understanding on HIPAA law that applies to Business Associates, the top 5 HIPAA Compliance Priorities, and also how to maintain a Business Associate's HIPAA Compliance Program. Please visit http://www.mentorhealth.com/control/w_product/~product_id=801287LIVE to enroll for this valuable learning.

The expert at this webinar, Paul Hales, will explain HIPAA compliance responsibilities for the Business Associate. Business Associates organizations that are involved in creating, receiving, maintaining or transmitting Protected Health Information (PHI) on behalf of a Covered Entity -or in providing a service or function involving PHI for a Covered Entity -are directly liable for compliance with HIPAA law that protects the privacy and security of PHI.

Understanding and implementing HIPAA compliance responsibilities is quite easy for the Business Associate, but only when it knows the step-by-step method of doing it. This simple approach is all that is needed if the Business Associate is to show compliance with HIPAA and avoid the inevitable penalties that result from noncompliance. It is to impart learning on this vital process that MentorHealth is organizing this webinar.

So, any Business Associate should have knowledge of what exactly it should do to comply with HIPAA. However, most Business Associates face two major roadblocks when it comes to protection of PHI privacy and security:

- One, most HIPAA responsibilities are new

- Two, though a BA is required to comply with the entire HIPAA Security Rule and parts of the HIPAA Privacy and Breach Notification Rules; HIPAA only directs it to identify a Security Official to develop and implement Security Rule Policies and Procedures, and offers no proper direction about developing its Privacy and Breach Notification Rule compliance program.

Setting out the top priorities

At this Business Associates 2018 - 5 Top HIPAA Compliance Priorities webinar, Paul will explain how to overcome these handicaps by describing the five HIPAA compliance priorities that Business Associates have:

- Designating the HIPAA compliance officer in the organization

- Understanding Risk Analysis and risk management

- Understanding how to implement the interconnected Business Associate Security Rule and Privacy Rule Compliance responsibilities with appropriate Policies and Procedures

- Knowledge of investigating, assessing and documenting potential breaches and if necessary, carrying out the notifications required by the Breach Notification Rule

- Understanding Business Associate Agreements with a Covered Entity and a Subcontractor Business Associate, which will help Business Associates write down their own Business Associate Agreement. This will help them recognize red flags, and avoid making their Subcontractor Business Associate their agent under the Federal Common Law of Agency by mistake.
