HIPAA Audits 2024 – How to Avoid and be Prepared

Live Webinar | Brian L. Tuttle | Jul 24, 2024 , 01 : 00 PM EST | 90 Minutes |  10 Days Left
Description

I will be speaking about real-life audits conducted by the OCR (I’ve been on both sides of these audits) and what your highest risks are for being fined (some of the risk factors may surprise you).  

It seems almost daily I am receiving calls from nervous practice managers and compliance officers all over the USA regarding a breach, complaint, audit letter, and sometimes litigation due to breach. 

The unprecedented amount of cyber breaches healthcare has seen over the last 2 years (more than any other sector of the economy) is fueling the bipartisan push in Washington to enforce laws already on the books.

This lesson will address how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) need to get their HIPAA house in order before the imminent audit/breach occurs. 

The primary goal is to ensure everyone is well educated on what is a myth and what is a reality with this law, there is so much misleading information all over regarding the do’s and don’ts with HIPAA – I want to add clarity for compliance officers and practice managers.

I will uncover myths versus reality as it relates to this very enigmatic law based on over 1000 risk assessments performed as well as years of experience in dealing directly with the Office for Civil Rights HIPAA auditors.   

I will speak on specific experiences from over 22 years of experience working in the HIPAA field as an outsourced compliance auditor, and expert witness on multiple HIPAA cases in state law, and thoroughly explain what you need to do.  

More importantly, I will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.

TRIAL ATTORNEYS ARE JUST AS DANGEROUS AS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THESE DAYS!!
