The Cutting Edge of Medical Technology Content, Community & Collaboration
This webinar will discuss HIPAA audit and enforcement regulations and processes for 2022 and how they apply to covered entities and business associates. Attendees will learn how to prepare for HIPAA audit to avoid fines and penalties for HIPAA violations.
Why Should You Attend:
While the worldwide pandemic has prompted some relaxation of HIPAA requirements in specific circumstances to ease provision of medical services while preserving social distancing requirements and addressing emergency vaccination needs, enforcement of HIPAA has continued.
HHS OCR has focused heavily on compliance with the HIPAA rules on individual access of information, with approximately one enforcement settlement per month since September of 2019 (more than two dozen settlements so far), and the new Information Blocking rules provide a fresh impetus for HHS to keep up the pressure. At the same time, enforcement actions continue for other violations, such as improper release of patient information, systemic noncompliance, lack of security risk analysis, and improperly addressed business relationships between affiliated entities.
