Event Description

Overview: This lesson will be addressing how practice/business managers (or compliance Overview: This lesson will be addressing how practice/business managers (or compliance 
offers) need to get their HIPAA house in order as HIPAA is now fully enforced and the government 
is not using kid gloves any more. It will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule and 
any other applicable updates for 2016 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 as well as working directly with auditors used by Health and Human Services 
and dispel myths vs realities. I will go over steps to take to avoid an audit or survive an 
audit. I have also served as expert witness on legal cases involving HIPAA violations, and I will 
thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of 
private health information (which leads to more audits). 
More importantly I will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and 
utilizing best practices.
