HIPAA Updates:

Keeping Up to Date on HIPAA Trends

As HIPAA law changes, states issue new privacy laws, and new OCR settlements are reached, it is important that HIPAA covered entities (CEs), business associates (BAs), and managed service providers (MSPs), are aware of their HIPAA obligations. Continually monitoring HIPAA updates can be difficult for small-mid sized businesses that don’t have the resources to devote to such a task. This is why Compliancy Group hosts a monthly webinar to inform attendees of ever-evolving HIPAA trends.

Each month, Compliancy Group chooses a topic that is particularly relevant to provide HIPAA updates to the public.

HIPAA Updates Webinar Topics

The following are some of the HIPAA updates webinars that we have hosted in the past, as well as upcoming webinars:

  • Do I Need to be HIPAA Compliant?: Since HIPAA was enacted there has been some misunderstanding around who needs to be HIPAA compliant. The misconception that only covered entities need to be HIPAA compliant, when in fact business associates with healthcare clients are also required to comply with HIPAA, has led to many organizations to be audited and fined. This webinar clears up those misconceptions, making it clear which organizations are required to comply with HIPAA.
  • Discover the Untold Benefits of HIPAA Compliance: In the past, a driving factor for becoming HIPAA compliant was the confidence of passing a federal audit in the event of a data breach. However, that’s just one of the many benefits of being HIPAA compliant. HIPAA compliance can have a lasting positive impact on your organization, from protecting your reputation to differentiating your business from competition.
  • Solving the HIPAA Problem: Compliancy Group’s software, The Guard, can help your organization achieve HIPAA Compliance, mitigate risk, and avoid fines.

  • HIPAA Compliance and Cybersecurity: 5 Things You Can Implement Within Your Organization Tomorrow: Enacted in 1996, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), established industry standards that every healthcare organization is required to adhere to. Throughout the years, HIPAA regulation has been modified, as such it is essential to keep up-to-date with the latest regulatory changes. Since its inception, HIPAA law has become part of an organization’s culture, affecting how to do business and how a practice is run.
  • HIPAA and Social Media: Growing Your Business: Some of the most common misunderstandings healthcare providers face stem from how to use social media in a HIPAA compliant manner. Employees must be properly trained on how to use social media before permitted to do so. Without adequate employee training, your organization may be subject to fines due to the misuse of social media.  

Whether your practice is using Facebook to attract new clients, or your employees are posting about their workday on Twitter, improper use of social media can lead to major HIPAA violations. With the widespread use of smartphones, and access to apps like Instagram and Snapchat, these violations are more frequent than ever before.
