Overview: This lesson is going to get back to the basics using multiple real life scenarios 
and "what if's". My goal is to make this very confusing and not well explained law easy to 
understand for the typical staff member. I will uncover myths versus reality as it relates to 
this enigmatic law based on over 1000 risk assessments performed as well as years of experience 
in dealing directly with the Office of Civil Rights HIPAA auditors. I will also point out 
multiple court cases I have been affiliated with where a staff member of a hospital or clinic has 
been sued or even imprisoned!
I will also speak to real life audits conducted by the Federal government (I've been on both 
sides of these audits) what your highest risks are for being fined (some of the risk factors may 
surprise you). In addition this course will cover the highest risk factors for being sued for 
wrongful disclosures of PHI and the manner in which patients are now using state laws to sue for 
wrongful disclosures. Don't always believe what you read online about HIPAA, especially as it 
relates to encryption and IT, there are a lot of groups selling more than is necessarily 
required. 
Why should you Attend: Are you confused about HIPAA? Do you just want the basics and in plain 
English? Do you know there are civil and criminal penalties even for the rank and file staff 
member! Do you know what you can and can't do with protected health information? 
It is important to understand the new changes going on at Health and Human Services as it relates 
to enforcement of HIPAA for both covered entities and business associates as it relates to 
portable devices, texting, and emailing of PHI. You need to know how to avoid being low hanging 
fruit in terms of audit risk as well as being sued by individuals who have had their PHI 
wrongfully discloses due to bad IT practices. I have also been expert witness on multiple court 
cases where a business or medical practice is being sued for not doing their due diligence to 
minimize risk.
