HIPAA Breach Notification Rule – What You Must Do To Comply – ONLINE/WEBINAR

August 15, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

| $139

Overview: Final regulations for the new HIPAA Breach Notification Rule require much more than notifying individuals affected by a Breach of their Protected Health Information (PHI). Covered Entities and Business Associates first must follow and document a very specific process to determine if a Breach occurred. If no Breach occurred documentary proof must be kept for six years. If a Breach did occur timely notifications and other actions must be undertaken and documented.

This webinar will explain:

What Covered Entities and Business Associates must do to comply with the Breach Notification Rule
What is and is not a Breach
Three exceptions – when an acquisition, access, use, or disclosure of PHI not permitted by the Privacy Rule is not a Breach
How to perform a Breach Risk Assessment to determine if you can demonstrate a low probability that the PHI was compromised
Who must be notified in case of a Breach
When notifications must be provided
What information must be contained in each notification
Other requirements in case of a Breach
Mitigate harm to affected individuals
Protect against further Breaches
Document everything
Planning and preparation for the worst – public relations and mitigation strategies to limit damage to the organization’s reputation and financial well-being

Why should you Attend:
Breaches and incidents that might be Breaches happen all the time!
More than 173,000 separate breaches of Protected Health Information (PHI) affecting less than 500 individuals were reported to the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) between September, 2009 and May 31, 2015 and in the same period HHS received approximately 1240 reports of PHI breaches that affected 500 or more individuals
An acquisition, access, use, or disclosure of PHI not permitted by the Privacy Rule is presumed to be a Breach unless it falls within an exception or the Covered Entity or Business Associate can demonstrate a low probability that the PHI was compromised
Not all suspected Breaches are Breaches – but you must know the rules to assess each incident and – when appropriate – prove it was not a Breach
A Covered Entity or Business Associate has the burden to prove an acquisition, access, use, or disclosure of PHI was not a Breach or, if a Breach occurred, that it made all required notifications
Prominent media outlets in the region must be notified of Breaches affecting 500 or more individuals
To preserve your organization’s reputation and limit its financial loss you must be prepared to assess a suspected Breach and to respond properly and perhaps publicly when a Breach does occur
Phishers, Hackers and Burglars are actively trying to get PHI – the FBI reported in 2014 that medical identity sells for $50 on the black market compared to $1 for a credit card or Social Security Number
