Clinical Practices – Applying a Common Sense Approach to HIPAA Compliance

With HIPAA regulations that were created in the 1990’s, clinical practices need to learn how to apply a common-sense approach to HIPAA compliance. Being in compliance with HIPAA involves not only ensuring you provide the appropriate patient rights and controls on your uses and disclosures of protected health information, but you also have the proper policies, procedures, and safeguards in place.

After completing this webinar, a practice will have a clear roadmap for what needs to be place when it comes to all of the HIPAA requirements and know how to look at the Code of Federal Regulations that pertain to HIPAA.

This webinar will breakdown the HIPAA Implementation Specifications so organizations can clearly understand the requirements and what safeguards must be in place. If your practice needs to understand the requirements of HIPAA compliance or make sure your current compliance program is adequate and can withstand government scrutiny, please join us for this informative and interactive course.
