MentorHealth to organize webinar on “HIPAA 2019 - What's New?” on January 9, 2019


Fremont, CA: MentorHealth, a leading provider of professional trainings for the healthcare industry, is organizing a webinar on the topic, “HIPAA 2019 - What's New?” on January 9, 2019. The speaker at this webinar is Brian L Tuttle, a highly regarded health IT and compliance professional. He will show participants how to understand the nuances of the changes that HIPAA will bring for 2019 and how to audit in accordance with these changes, which will put them on the path to proper and hassle-free HIPAA compliance. To enroll for this webinar --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- HIPAA has been undergoing changes from the time of its inception. Each successive change requires practice or business managers or compliance officers to stay completely updated about these requirements and understand their workings in the right perspective. Why is this learning important? Simple: HIPAA compliance is no longer viewed leniently by the HHS. All the core components of HIPAA compliance, such as changes under the Omnibus Rule, what changes the Trump administration has brought in into HIPAA and what else it is planning to, new congressional mandates, and any other applicable updates for 2019 and beyond, will be discussed at this webinar. This will lay the groundwork for proper implementation of the HIPAA provisions by Covered Entities and Business Associates. Obviously, being in violation of the HIPAA requirements is a nightmare of the highest order for any of these entities. CE's and BA's come under heavy scrutiny from the HHS and are fined very heavily for violations. Brian will discuss what the most common types of violations are, which will help the participants of this webinar get a proper idea and perspective of what to implement and what to avoid. Brian will explain other prominent areas of HIPAA. These include State laws, which are now in place and are increasing liability for patient remedies. He will also explain what factors might spurn a lawsuit or a HIPAA audit and explain how participants can do these things right. Also, insight will be offered into why the federal government is enforcing these sections with such severity after all these years. He will show how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information. Over the 90 minutes of this webinar presentation, Brian will cover the following areas: o Updates for 2019 and Beyond o Fines o Portable devices o Texting and Emailing - New Guidelines o Changes under new OCR Director and Congress o New Definition of Protected Health Information o Real Life Audits and Litigated Cases o Business Associates and the Increased Burden o Breach Notification o Paperwork that Needs to be Updated o Risk Factors This learning is of immense value to professionals who are involved in HIPAA compliance. These include 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.), and MD's and Other Medical Professionals.
