Course Description

In this lesson, ExecSense examines how HIPAA audits will influence your business and impact liability and risk in the healthcare industry for 2016. Take the 60 minutes to learn what HIPAA encompasses and which areas executives must focus on to reduce their risk and liability.

This 6-chapter lesson is led by an expert on the topic, Mike Meikle (CEO – secureHIM), and covers HIPAA privacy and security rules, protected health information (PHI), and this year’s federal audits.

In this 60-minute session, you will learn:

  • What the current state of cybersecurity is in the healthcare industry, how external attackers using “ransomware” are an increasing threat, why sharing data with third parties can lead to breaches, and how literally millions of records have been leaked since 2009
  • How HITECH, the “Final Rule,” and HIPAA have changed the regulatory environment, how those laws dictate patient data security enforcement, and how they impact patients, providers, and workplaces
  • A list of the most common HIPAA violations: poor disposal of PHI materials, improper staff training, discussions of specific patients in public forums, noncompliance with security rules, and more
  • A comprehensive overview of best care practices under HIPAA including understanding “covered entities,” gray areas within legal frameworks, reasonable precautions for protecting PHI, collaborating with peer organizations, and limiting PHI access
  • Case studies of 2 established health organizations who faced digital and physical breaches, how they dealt with those challenges, and what your organization should take away from them
