Most discussions on HIPAA look at the regulations and the need for compliance with it. While this is not wrong, what is equally important for Business Associates and their Covered Entities is to understand the roles and responsibilities of a HIPAA officer. The HIPAA Privacy & Security Officer is the one tasked with the complete responsibility of ensuring compliance with HIPAA. So, the HIPAA Privacy & Security Officer has to have complete knowledge of the ways of implementing the regulations and the consequences of noncompliance.

At this webinar from MentorHealth, the expert, Howard Jones, who, during a career spanning almost four decades, has been providing services related to practice management and regulatory compliance issues, selection of billing/EMR systems, and the design of EMR templates for practices and EMR vendors, and has focused on providing services related to healthcare regulations; will take the perspective of HIPAA compliance not so much from the textual part of the regulations, as from the viewpoint of the dynamics of the role of a HIPAA compliance officer. He will impart knowledge of some the best practices to be HIPAA officers.

Performing a unique function

The task of ensuring complete and proper compliance with the HIPAA regulations is best left to a properly qualified and trained individual, simply because of the sheer number of the regulations and their complex, and often vague nature. Also, compliance or noncompliance with HIPAA regulations has an impact on every person working in a healthcare facility. Press Release

The HIPAA compliance officer must hence bring the requisite education, background, experience, and demonstrated skill sets to succeed. The challenge for most healthcare organizations is that this is an evolving position and is pretty new. It is thus very important for healthcare organizations to have clarity on who this person should be, what is expected of her, and whom she will interact with on a daily and long-term basis to help the healthcare organization achieve HIPAA compliance. In the process of explaining these; Howard will also offer a detailed job description for the position mandated in the regulations. Press Release

Naturally, this learning is vital for someone interested in becoming a HIPAA Security/Privacy Officer, someone who will make the decision for hiring a person for this position, Practice/Hospital Administrators, MDs and Healthcare Professionals, IT Professionals, Facility Managers, Business Associates of healthcare facilities, attorneys, and any person who deals directly or indirectly with PHI.
