The "HIPAA 2018 - Understanding Compliance Program Requirements" conference has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

If your healthcare practice, business, or organization needs to understand how to put HIPAA compliance program in place or make sure the current program is adequate and can withstand government scrutiny.

With a new year upon us, is your organization keeping up with the HIPAA requirements mandated by the Code of Federal Regulations? Many organizations still need to fully understand the requirements of a compliance program.

Why? In 2016, there was a trend towards higher settlements payments. There were 7 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 will continue.

Attendees will leave the course clearly understanding of all the requirements for a comprehensive HIPAA compliance program and what steps need to be taken to mitigate risk. The seminar will include practical exercise to assist in knowing how to develop, review, and amend HIPAA policy and procedure. After completing this course, a Covered Entity or Business Associate will have a clear roadmap for what needs to be place when it comes to all of the HIPAA regulations.
