HIPAA's PHI Rule: Meet Your Compliance Obligations Before the September 23 Deadline
|Date / Time:
In March 2013, the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Civil Rights issued a comprehensive rule to the privacy, security, enforcement, and breach notification rules for HIPAA. On September 23, 2013, all covered entities must comply with most of the rule's provisions.
In addition to making "business associates" themselves liable for compliance, the rule also means beefed up HIPAA penalties for non-compliance. For instance, an organization could be hit with a $50,000 per-violation fine capping out at $1.5 million for identical violations. Keep in mind that the fines may be stacked for various types of violations, which could result in maximum penalties much higher than the annual cap.
In order to meet the latest compliance obligations, as well as to learn what is on horizon in the next year before the second compliance deadline in September 2014 approaches, participate in this informative and timely webinar and get up to date on HIPAA's new PHI rule.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
