Friday, December 1 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Training Options Duration: 60 Minutes Friday, December 1, 2017 | 10:00 AM PDT | 01:00 PM EDT

Overview: Discussions, presentation, and webinars regarding HIPAA regulations are

usually addressed from the perspective of what the regulations entail, the necessity of

compliance with the regulations, and the consequences of willful neglect or non-compliance.

This presentation addresses HIPAA regulations from a different perspective – from a personal

perspective – from the perspective of the person in charge of moving an organization or

facility toward full compliance with HIPAA. The by-product of this presentation will be both

an understanding of, and a detailed job description for, a position mandated in the

regulations – the HIPAA Security/Privacy Officer.

Why should you Attend: The HIPAA regulations are numerous, complicated, often vague, and

affect every person working in a healthcare facility. Compliance with HIPAA will require a

unique individual to lead the charge – an individual whose education, background, experience,

and demonstrated skill sets offer the opportunity for that person to succeed in achieving the

goals of that position. This is a new position to most healthcare facilities. So

understanding who this person should be, what is required of the person with this job title,

and with whom this person will interface is vital to every healthcare organization with the

goal of achieving full compliance with HIPAA.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Position Goals Position Requirements (education, experience, skill sets, etc.) Position Responsibilities Stay Abreast of Regulations Initiate compliance with HIPAA (according to regulations) Ensure continuous progress toward full compliance Develop appropriate security/privacy policies & procedures Oversee and deliver appropriate training programs to all employees Track compliance with HIPAA regulations at the facility & individual levels Track access to PHI Investigate and resolve HIPAA Violations Apply sanctions to HIPAA Violators Manage any Information Security Personnel Prepare a Department Budget Hold Business Associates accountable for their own compliance with HIPAA and the list goes on
