HIPAA Privacy Bootcamp

Basic Training:  HIPAA Privacy Post Omnibus Rule & Beyond
The Omnibus Final Rule implements changes enacted by the HITECH Act and makes other refinements to the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Breach Notification and Enforcement Rules.  Subsequent guidance made further refinements to these rules.  Learn the latest rules and get tips on steps you and your organization should take to maintain compliance with these updated requirements.

Preparing To Survive An OCR Audit
HITECH Act amendments to HIPAA require OCR to audit the compliance of covered entities and business associates with the HIPAA Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rules.  OCR officials recently have signaled that OCR is preparing to put new teeth in its audit program.   To help participants prepare their organizations for an OCR audit, this session will help participants understand what OCR is likely to ask in an audit by looking at the latest OCR Audit Checklist, resolution agreements and other OCR guidance as well as share practical tips for structuring and documenting compliance audits and other HIPAA compliance activities to help their organization to prepare to respond to an OCR audit or enforcement action.

HIPAA Business Associate Contracting & Risk Management
OCR’s Final Omnibus HIPAA Rule implementing the HITECH Act’s changes to HIPAA’s business associate, breach notification and other rules elevated the complexity and importance of business associate contracting and risk management for both covered entities and their business associates.    This session will examine the business associate coverage, contracting and breach notification requirements of the Final Omnibus HIPAA Rule and discuss contracting and risk management best practices to help covered entities and business associates manage their business associate responsibilities and risks in light of these expanded rules and exposures.

Strengthening Your Defenses Using The Rules Of Legal Evidence

Covered entities, business associates and their privacy, security and other leaders often can help strengthen the defensibility of their compliance and risk management efforts by understanding how rules like the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, evidentiary rules like attorney-client privilege and work-product, the business records exceptions and other rules of legal procedure affect the defensibility of their actions and leveraging this understanding when conducting their compliance, investigations, documentation and other activities to help strengthen their organization’s defenses.
