Event Description

Thursday, August 17, 2017 | 10:00 AM PDT | 01:00 PM EDT

Overview: Many organizations that provide health care services also provide other services that are not related to heath care and are that not paid for by health plans or Medicaid. For such organizations a decision must be made: Do we apply HIPAA controls and policies throughout the organization for all programs, or do we decide what parts of our organization are under HIPAA and what parts are not, and designate Hybrid Entity status under HIPAA? There are significant impacts in making the choice to be a Hybrid Entity or not, and entities need to consider their own particular circumstances to determine the most appropriate path to take.

In This Session:

The definition of a HIPAA Hybrid Entity
Typical Hybrid Entities
Understanding your information flows
How much of your work is healthcare?
Requirements of not claiming Hybrid status
Requirements of claiming Hybrid status
The HIPAA Authorization issue
Example Hybrid Entity analyses
Policy and Procedure Requirements
Documentation and Training Requirements

Why should you Attend: Recent HIPAA enforcement settlements indicate the importance of properly designating Hybrid Entity status. UMass paid a $650,000 settlement amount, reflective of the fact that the University operated at a loss in 2015, for not adequately identifying all the HIPAA covered elements of UMass activities and improperly designating its Hybrid Entity status. Skagit County, Washington also settled with HHS after they had not properly designated the county as a Hybrid Entity due to its County Health Department activities.
