Beyond HIPAA Training: The ABC's of HIPAA Compliance

Professional Type: Management
Date: 2/15/18
Time: 1:00 - 2:30 pm
Location: Webinar

The Financial Risks are Substantial The Hospice of North Idaho was fined $50,000 for not protecting 441 records. Excel Plus Home Health Inc. in TX reported theft of a desktop with 524 patient's information. In March 2016, North Memorial Health Care of Minnesota paid $1.5 million to OCR after a HIPAA audit revealed that the organization did not conduct a proper risk assessment. Fines like this could cripple a home care or hospice agency. The office of Civil Rights (OCR) issues fines to HIPAA-covered entities that fail to implement the necessary safeguards to secure protected health information. HIPAA compliance is more than just annual training. This webinar will cover three areas where agencies should focus attention now!
