May 6, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 3:30 pm MST
Now that the HIPAA compliance deadline has passed, health care providers have been struggling to comply with the unique challenges this regulation brings. Forms and privacy notifications have become the norm in the health care industry. But is your practice covering all of its bases and ensuring that your patients’ information is protected? Do you know how to properly handle requests for medical records? Are you aware of the penalties that could result if reasonable safeguards are not taken? Do you know how to deal with sensitive records regarding information on minors, AIDS, and mental health? Are your electronic billing practices secured?
Attend this one-day seminar and receive the answers to all these questions and more. Attendees will discuss the three major components to HIPAA compliance: privacy, security, and electronic transactions. You will be given a step-by-step guide to guarantee that your practice or facility is fully secure. Information pertaining to writing the required policies, procedures, and consents will be discussed, as well as samples of all required forms. Attendees will leave this seminar armed with all the information needed to comply with the HIPAA regulations.
