HIPAA NOW HAS TEETH! Be prepared! Protect your business !
What factors might spurn a HIPAA audit? …are you doing these things ?
Why are the Feds enforcing after all these years ?
We will be discussing some of the changes taking place in Washington with the Health and Human Services in regards to the enforcement of the HIPAA laws already on the books. I will go over some of the new changes affecting business associates.
