New laws and funding have tightened the screws on HIPAA compliance on Business Associates like never before. Having a foolproof, watertight HIPAA compliance program is the only way for Business Associates to remain compliant with HIPAA and thus insulate themselves from the high negative fallouts that noncompliance entails. This HIPAA compliance program should be risk based and be free from blemishes when HIPAA audits take place.
Press Release

The ways of implementing such a HIPAA compliance program will be the essence of the learning this webinar is going to impart. Not only does the federal law on this topic require HIPAA compliance; even Covered Entities, for whom Business Associates work, are scrutinizing HIPAA compliance requirements to a high degree before they satisfy themselves about working with Business Associates. Putting in place a HIPAA compliance program that meets the requirements needed from Business Associates is the essence of HIPAA compliance.

Critical need for putting a risk based HIPAA compliance program in place

The need for a risk based HIPAA compliance program has become acute for several reasons:

- The patient’s ability to sue for wrongful disclosure has gone up in manifold ways

- HIPAA is now being used to sue for even state cases of negligence

- Wrongfully disclosing PHI due to bad IT or internal administrative practices can invite penalties.

Part of the difficulty associated with implementing HIPAA compliance is the misconceptions and myths about HIPAA compliance that abounds in the industry. Helping to eradicate these myths is one of the principal aims of this webinar. Brian will describe the highest factors for which Business Associates can get sued or audited. He will also show how the Omnibus Rule is being aimed at Business Associates to increase the likeliness of being sued.

In short, Brian will show how Business Associates need to prepare for HIPAA audits and build a risk-based HIPAA compliance strategy free from the myths surrounding HIPAA compliance. He will clarify on the several types of misinformation that characterizes HIPAA compliance.
