Discussions, presentation, and webinars regarding HIPAA regulations are usually addressed from the perspective of what the regulations entail, the necessity of compliance with the regulations, and the consequences of willful neglect or non-compliance.
This presentation addresses HIPAA regulations from a different perspective – from a personal perspective – from the perspective of the person in charge of moving an organization or facility out of “willful neglect” and into full compliance with HIPAA.
The by-product of this presentation will be both an understanding of, and a detailed job description for, a position mandated in the regulations – the HIPAA Security/Privacy Officer.
Why You Should Attend:
The HIPAA regulations are numerous, complicated, often vague, and affect every person working in a healthcare facility. Compliance with HIPAA will require a unique individual to lead the charge – an individual whose education, background, experience, and demonstrated skill sets offer the opportunity for that person to succeed in achieving the goals of that position.
This is a new position to most healthcare facilities. So the objective of this presentation is for the audience to understand:
- Who this person should be
- What is required of the person with this job title
- With whom this person will interface
Understanding these things is vital to every healthcare organization with the goal of having the right person in this position, so that full compliance with HIPAA can be achieved.HC2422
