Overview of the webinar

HIPAA compliance training is one of three major components of an effective HIPAA compliance program; including the HIPAA Risk Assessment, writing HIPAA Policies and Procedures and conducting the HIPAA training program.    The HIPAA training program is the process that links the HIPAA compliance components together.  It provides the means by which your management and staff learn your HIPAA Policies and Procedures and what has been found in the HIPAA Risk Assessment and how to resolve any key gaps in the organization’s compliance efforts.  The process makes each of your management and staff aware of their individual responsibilities and how they need to comply with the organization’s policies and procedures.   The training program will also address the importance of advances in mobile and social media technology, its risks related to HIPAA compliance and how the management and staff should respond to the challenges provided by the technology advances.

Why should you attend?

Most HIPAA breaches result from an unauthorized breach precipitated by an employee’s failure to follow procedures. HIPAA training is one of the main components of a health care organization’s HIPAA compliance program. The health care organization needs to ensure that its management and staff are aware of the organization’s and their individual responsibilities to protect patient protected health information.  The need for effective and recurring training is complicated by the rapid advancement of social media and mobile device technology.  These advances have further moved the areas of control of the patient health information for management and staff and provide an increased potential for an unauthorized disclosure by any individual who has access to patient information and the ability to disclose that information outside the control of the health care organization.  This training program addresses the health care organization’s risks and how to best address those risks.
