HIPAA Hot Topics and Current Trends
Recorded: February 8, 2018
CEU: 1.0 – Privacy and Security
This timely presentation delivers an update of the most important healthcare privacy and security rule / guidance regulatory changes, including but not limited to, HIPAA. The session also covers some evolving best practices that address these rule changes. The presentation is intended to impart a large volume of information about the rapidly changing regulatory privacy and security environment in a relatively short time frame with comprehensive slide content usable by attendees after the presentation as they adopt and train others on these subjects. Mr. McLendon is well known for condensing and simplifying the complex presentation content into easily learnable points with his signature delivery style.
Topics such as; patient’s right of access and how attorneys are using newly clarified guidance to their advantage, along with new information about the OCR phase 2 audit program will be highlighted, but not dominate the presentation. Other topics such as January’s SAMHSA final rule, the Cures Act, the Federal Trade Commission’s actions and various security issues such as mobile devices, phishing and ransomware are constantly being revised by Mr. McLendon and may be discussed.
The slides themselves will be selected from a larger master set Mr. McLendon maintains to reflect the timing and audience of the presentation. This master set of slides constantly undergoes updates as the rules and guidance changes. Any really ‘HOT’ topics that arise after handout submission, as is typical within the fast changing nature of healthcare privacy and security, will be covered with new slides that are also discussed with an updated slide deck for these additions to be offered to the attendees after the session. For example, OCR has several rules including penalty splitting and Accounting of Disclosures that might drop at any time, if they are released prior to the seminar they will be addressed within its content.
Mr. McLendon works with many successful privacy and security professionals, including attorneys, on the topics of healthcare regulatory privacy and security which allows him rapid access to the deluge of information that is now typical, as new pressures on privacy and security compliance is being applied in an ever increasing manner as increasingly records become electronic and health information exchange expands.
