Participants will review what a HIPAA breach is and what to do when a HIPAA breach occurs. This includes determining if the disclosure of patient health information was a breach or wasn’t a breach. The participants will learn what to do if the breach occurred to determine the magnitude and scope of the breach, the individuals who patient health information was breached, how to mitigate the damages, to whom they are supposed to report. The participants will also learn about the responsibilities of business associates in identifying and reporting HIPAA breaches. The program also addresses how to reduce the organization’s risk of a breach, including IT controls, training and use of encryption.
In today’s healthcare environment, it is no longer a case of “if” a HIPAA breach will occur, but “when” the HIPAA breach occurs. Healthcare organizations and their supporting companies need to know what to do when a breach occurs. HIPAA penalties for breaches directly relate to the organization’s care and preparation in preventing these breaches as well as the diligence with which the organization responds when the breach happens. How a healthcare organization responds to a breach will provide the investigating body with evidence that the organization takes HIPAA compliance seriously and is taking all appropriate actions to mitigate the damage from the breach and to comply with breach reporting requirements.
