There has been a trend towards higher settlements payments. There were 7 recent settlements over $1 million including $5.5 million, $3.9 million, and $2.75 million and 12 overall resolutions settlements. In 2017, there was continued HIPAA enforcement with a number of new settlements announced and the trend continues in 2018.

Roger Severino, the Director of OCR, has said “enforcement is a key aspect of HIPAA” and organizations must embrace a “new posture of preventive security.”

If your organization experiences a HIPAA breach, OCR will be conducting an investigation and requesting compliance policies and procedures, risk assessment reports and training records. Find out how to prepare. The presenter for this webinar has worked with organizations under investigation by OCR.

Attendees will leave the webinar clearly understanding of all the requirements that must be in place for HIPAA and how to demonstrate compliance if investigated.
