Responsibilities for Managing HIPAA Compliance

On July 14, 2016, the feds announced that the “HIPAA audit program has kicked into high gear.” It’s up to leadership to follow the rules, create a culture of vigilance, and avoid costly penalties.

Recent federal investigations – leading to fines and settlements -- show carelessness and neglect as primary enemies.  Social media abuses loom as well.   

In a 2016 survey co-sponsored by the nonprofit Health Care Compliance Association, participating healthcare providers ranked social media as their #1 compliance concern.
 
Learn how to protect patient information by putting the required safeguards in plan. This course includes real examples of how breaches can and do happen.   For healthcare employees with compliance responsibilities, this is must-have knowledge.
