Training Options Duration: 90 Minutes Thursday, August 2, 2018 | 10:00 AM PDT | 01:00 PM EDT

Overview: I will address specific litigated cases I have worked where the covered entity

had to pay out nasty fines to the Federal government and high settlements to patients affected

by inappropriate usage of the EMR system – I will also address situations where the covered

entity DID NOT receive any fines or judgements (even in the event of a breach or malicious

actions) due to the fact they were using the systems in a “compliant manner” I will also be

addressing how practice managers (or compliance offers) need to understand how to properly

utilize the EMR system for HIPAA compliance.

I will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule and any other applicable updates for

2017 and beyond. There are an enormous amount of issues and risks for covered entities and

business associates these days. I will speak on specific experiences from over 17 years of

experience in working as an outsourced compliance auditor, expert witness on multiple HIPAA

cases, and thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful

disclosures of private health information. More importantly I will show you how to limit those

risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.
