Date Oct 30, 2013
Time 01:00 PM EDT
Cost $225.00
Course Description: New rules have finalized the Interim Final Rule on HIPAA Breach Notification, but there has been an important change in how to determine whether or not a breach is reportable.  Old policies and processes must be replaced with an updated process meeting the new rule’s requirements no later than September 23, 2013.  HIPAA entities will need to follow the new rules or risk substantial fines and penalties, including multi-year corrective action plans.
Course Objective: HIPAA Breach Notification rules require notification of individuals and HHS when information security is breached, and the rules for determining what to report have changed.  The HIPAA Breach Notification Rule required by the HITECH Act within the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 requires all HIPAA covered entities and business associates to follow a number of steps to be in compliance.  If there is a breach of protected health information that does not meet one of the strictly defined exceptions or has greater than a “low risk of compromise,” the breach must be reported to the individual, and all such breaches must be reported to the Secretary of the US Department of Health and Human Services at least annually.
