Upcoming Event Looks at PHI Safeguard Compliance Requirements for HIPAA/HITECH and Meaningful Use

Ed_JonesNational HIPAA Expert, Ed Jones, Addresses PHI Compliance Requirements on July 3oth Webinar

The investigation findings of no risk analysis or safeguard policies underpinning the data breach settlement of $4.8 million announced on May 7, 2014, by HHS, involving NY-Presbyterian Hospital and Columbia University highlights what national expert Edward D. Jones, III has found empirically, namely, hospitals and physician practices need help—in plain language—for addressing HIPAA/HITECH Act privacy, security, and breach notification issues. Compliance requirements—risk analysis, safeguard policies and procedures, workforce training on those safeguards, ongoing risk management evaluation, documentation, and reporting—are agnostic across covered entities and business associates. Scale and increased complexity relating to risk management are significant for physician practices, and greater still for hospitals.

Join HITECH Answers for an in depth look at HIPAA/HITECH Act and Meaningful Use Security compliance requirements for PHI.
