This webinar will be addressing how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) need to get the facts straight on how to navigate through these troubled waters and yet maintain compliance with HIPAA and ensure a patient's federal Civil Rights are upheld.

The primary goal is to ensure everyone is well educated on what is myth and what is reality with HIPAA and COVID19, there is so much misleading information regarding the do's and don'ts relating to HIPAA and COVID19 - I want to add clarity for compliance officers and practice managers and what you need to do and how to best implement these changes based on over 20 years of personal experience working with Federal auditors, state auditors litigation, and corporate auditors.

I will address multiple FAQ's relating to:

  • Information Security Risks
  • Permitted disclosures during a pandemic
  • What to disclose to others who may have been in contact with an infected patient
  • How to work remotely and stay compliant with HIPAA

Why you should Attend:

Join me in this in depth 90-minute webinar where we will get into the nitty-gritty about the roles and responsibilities of a HIPAA Compliance Officer and Practice Managers as it relates to outbreak of COVID19 and how we must still comply with HIPAA.

The United States Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has issued new COVID-19 guidance on various aspects of its jurisdiction under both HIPAA and the federal civil rights laws.

How do we balance patient privacy during a pandemic?

How do we respond to news media on cases we are treating?

Are there compliance risks in what we should be addressing in our response and what type of disclosures are we permitted to make?

What disclosures can we make to those who may have been in contact with an afflicted patient?

What are the best tactics for having staff members work from home (telemedicine or teleworking) and how do we ensure compliance in an ad-hoc remote setup?

Are staff adequately trained on the nuances of teleworking using their personal devices?

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Federal HIPAA obligations and how a pandemic applies
  • Working from home in a compliant manner
  • New definition of what constitutes protected health information
  • Cybersecurity concerns (heightened due to outbreak)
  • BYOD (use of personal devices)
  • Acceptable disclosures during a pandemic per HIPAA
  • Updates from OCR relating to the outbreak and HIPAA rights

Who Will Benefit:

  • Practice Managers
  • Any Business Associates who work with Medical Practices or Hospitals (i.e. Billing Companies, Transcription Companies, IT Companies, Answering Services, Home Health, Coders, Attorneys, etc)
  • MD's and Other Medical Professionals
