Upcoming Webinar: Hear from Health & Human Services, Avoid the Biggest HIPAA Mistakes

 

WHAT:

FairWarning, Inc., the inventor and KLAS Category Leader in Patient Privacy

Monitoring1 will host an industry-wide webinar titled “Straight from the Source:

HHS Tools for Avoiding Some of the Biggest HIPAA Mistakes” featuring

Laura Rosas, Senior Advisor, Office of the Chief Privacy Officer, Health & Human Services.
 
In 2014, covered entities can expect to receive an inquiry letter covering the most
frequent problem areas in the HIPAA pilot audits. The Security Risk Assessment is
required by both the HIPAA Security Rule and the CMS EHR Incentive Program, also known as
Meaningful Use.
 
Health & Human Services released a downloadable Security Risk Assessment Tool
this past March to help covered entities evaluate their security position and identify
areas needing improvement. The time is now to identify the weakest areas, and take
action to improve prior to an audit.
 

During this webinar, Ms. Rosas will walk through this tool to help attendees avoid

some of the biggest HIPAA mistakes, including tips and recommendations for

getting the most from the self-assessment.
