Being Prepared for a HIPAA Audit

A HIPAA audit is very important for service providing organizations, because the penalties for violations can bring their business down. It is important to understand the nuances of a HIPAA audit if one has to be successful.A HIPAA audit is, for many service providing organizations, a make or break situation. This is because HIPAA audits are considered stringent. Violations can attract huge penalties, which is why getting it right the first time is extremely important. An entry level HIPAA violation can cost the organization upwards of $200,000, and the highest can run into multiple seven-figure amounts. So, an organization has to ensure that it gets its HIPAA audit right.Risk analysis is the heart of the matterInsulating oneself from heavy HIPAA audit violations requires service providers to be compliant with HIPAA audit requirements. Conducting a comprehensive risk analysis is the perfect solution to a HIPAA audit. These may appear to be no-brainers, but at its core, a HIPAA audit looks for these critical areas, so it is all the wiser for organizations to ensure these basic requirements to get the audit of their Security Rule and Privacy Rule right.A thorough and comprehensive risk analysis has to be done to offset HIPAA violations, since a HIPAA audit can happen across the broad for a large number of parameters. HIPAA expects the service providers it audits to not only have these; they should also demonstrate so.What practices are necessary for passing a HIPAA audit?While being compliant with the risk analysis requirements is at the core of being compliant with HIPAA audit requirements; other tips can go some way in helping organizations understand ways by which to deal with HIPAA audits:Any plans relating to the service provider's data management, security, training and notification should be documentedA secure access password policy has to be put in placeAlthough not a strict HIPAA requirement, encrypting Protected Health Information, irrespective of whether the PHI is in a database or in files on a remote server, is a good practiceUsing SSL whenever there is web access of sensitive data is a good ideaOnly some, select members of the organization should have knowledge of the techniques relating to encryption and the way they workScans and images should be encrypted and should contain no personally identifiable informationAvoid using public FTPOnly VPN access is best used for remote accessA disaster recovery plan should be documentedRead More : http://www.mentorhealth.com/control/w_product/~product_id=800893LIVE/See More

Editing skill for scientific writers

For many professionals, writing skills are learned while they are on the job. In many cases, they would go by a preferred style or other documents or style guides that help to put a certain style in place. Editing, however, is rarely taught. Worse, the perception most people have of editing is that it is revising or rewriting a work. But the truth is different. Editing gives shape to a document. It helps to perfect and sculpt it. The big question most editors face is: Where does one stop editing a document?An all too common situation most employees find themselves in is when they decide o edit a document one last time after their team has spent hours, weeks, or months producing it. The more one pores over each line and word; the more the opportunities for setting one small part right. This process of finding errors and inconsistencies never seems to end.The ways of effectively editing scientific documents to give it solid presentation and shape will be the topic of a webinar that is being organized by MentorHealth, a leading provider of professional trainings for the healthcare industry.Hope J Lafferty, a board-certified Editor in the Life Sciences who brings more than 20 years' experience as a science editor, will be the speaker at this webinar. Just visit http://www.mentorhealth.com/control/w_product/~product_id=800881LIVE/~sel=LIVE/~Hope%20J_Lafferty/~Editing_Your_Own_Work_(after_you've_read_it_1000_times)to register for this useful learning session.Making editing funHope will offer a fun and informative program that helps professionals that write to improve their editing and proofreading skills produce impeccable documents that are error-free and friendlier to read.All the lessons Hope has learnt during her long career as a science and medical writer and editor will be imparted at this webinar. Hope’s knack of identifying simple solutions to common problems will be in full display at this session. She will equip participants at every level with tools to improve their ability to edit, proofread, and finalize their manuscripts, grants, presentations, and technical documents with greater facility.Any personnel in the technical areas, such as scientist, researcher, or technical writer, who is required to edit one’s own work; will derive important use from this webinar, which will outline the following:o  Common problems in writing scientific and technical documents that we need to correct before final approval and submission but that we often overlooko  Common problems in how we read material that we've read and rewritten many timeso  How to approach documents with fresh eyes and spot mistakes with greater speed and accuracyo  The importance of planning and scheduling an editorial phase to written projects and how to make the most of the time we have.Hope will cover the following areas at this webinar:o  Common Writing Mistakes That Are Easy to Misso  Common Problems in How We Review Our Worko  Best Editorial Practices.See More

Making financial institution’s payment franchise stronger

Financial institutions have long been the most important source of payments for their customers. Of late, though, with an increase in competition and the advent of new non-bank entries into the marketplace, financial institutions have come under a lot more strain than they used to be.Financial institutions need to reinvent themselves in a number of ways. They need to adapt novel strategies to capitalize on the existing trust and the customer experience to reverse the trend in order to get back lost customers, and retain existing ones. They need to phase out outdated payments models, since these are becoming expensive to maintain and make a profit, and start viewing payments from the customers’ perspective to better understand their needs now and in the future.Get to learn the ways of getting it rightThe ways by which the financial institutions can see the present economic scenario in a new perspective which will help them make grow and make profits will be the learning a webinar from Compliance4All, a leading provider of professional trainings for the areas of regulatory compliance, will be providing.Ray Graber, a senior BFSI professional who brings a deep and thorough understanding of banking, technology, and finance, will be the speaker at this webinar. To get a thorough perspective of financial institutions, please register by logging on to http://www.compliance4all.com/control/w_product/~product_id=501036Working through the silosBanks, credit unions, and payments processors face a peculiar situation when they have to win customers and maintain compliance with procedures at the same time. Security precautions on one area may not carry over to another, as a result of which the whole plan may crumble. Customers have various entry points into the bank and credit union –each with its own vulnerabilities and access. Protecting one may provide a gap in another unless they are bound to each other and are seen as dependent upon one another. To overcome this shortfall, financial institutions need to develop a comprehensive payments strategy across business groups.A few financial institutions have created customer-centric marketing plans around a particular type of customer. This has served as the basis for the bank to also create security to match that philosophy.This webinar is useful for executives in every bank and credit union area, such as Payments Professionals, Operations Managers, Financial Officers, Risk Officers, Internal Auditors, Operational Risk Managers, Business Managers/Controllers, and Account Managers, as they develop and maintain payments as the core business practice for their customersRay will cover the following areas at this webinar:What does Customer-Centric mean?What is the customer's view of payments?Customer's needsView of compliance/rules/regulationsWhat is the financial institution's view?How do they stay compliant?Rules and regulations the customer does not seeBalancing customer service and complianceS.W.O.T.Strengths that banks should exploitWeaknesses that banks should shore upOpportunities for banks to take advantage ofThreats that banks cannot ignoreExamplesU.S. BankInternational bankNon-bankVirtual bankSee More

Regulating Nanotechnology in food

Nanotechnology, a part of Quantum Physics (QP), is growing fast and has myriad uses. Nanotechnology is all about size and self-assembly. While QP deals with subatomic particles and waves; Nano relates to the atomic and molecular level. Atomic behavior and properties get dramatically changed at the Nano level. Of note are properties such as color change due to refraction of light. Gold, packaging and chemistry are some of the well-known areas into which nanotechnology is applied and in which it is immensely useful.The potential to change the nutritive quality of foodNanotechnology has a significant impact on food. Nanoparticles are used in every aspect of food and food processing. The use of nanotechnology enhances food products and methods of manufacture and improvises quality by helping in better preservation.Nanotechnology looks likely to impact food behavior in a big way. The interactive food ingredients currently being developed from this technology would allow consumers to choose the color and desired flavor. More importantly, ingested Nano capsules using Nano sensors would inject the body with the exact dosage of the required nutrients, including vitamins, to treat deficiencies.There are downsides, tooHowever, there are some downsides which, if left unregulated, could lead to consumer health issues. This will be the core of the topic of a webinar that is being organized by MentorHealth, a leading provider of professional trainings for the healthcare industry.Robert J Verdicchio, an industrial scientist and formulator with more than fifty years of experience in the chemical specialties area with a specialization in healthcare and beauty aids, will be the speaker at this webinar. To register for this learning session, please log on to http://www.mentorhealth.com/control/w_product/~product_id=800887#26534.Contaminants can be extracted from the Nano clays used to form enhanced barrier protection, particularly in beverages like beer. The extracted material from container to the beer must be carefully monitored. This is because although alcohol in beer, together with small particle size high extractable zinc oxide is used to protect from UV rays; Nano zinc oxide has been found to cause lung health issues. At this session, Robert will quote many more such examples. The gains far outweigh the risks, provided proper controls are put in place.Need for regulationWhile its uses are many and the technology is growing fast, government regulations have not kept pace with this technology, as a result of which safety guidelines and regulations are still nascent. The FDA currently does not monitor the area but a task force is currently looking into guidelines which should be forthcoming.This webinar session will discuss all these issues. See More
