The Employer's Guide to HIPAA Privacy Compliance

Program Description:

HIPAA is not just for health care providers. Every employer, HR staff member, IT provider or manager with access to employee data, health or insurance in formation is liable for its security.

For small business owners, company executives or human resources managers not involved directly in the medical profession, it’s one of the most stressful questions they can ask themselves: “Am I 100 percent sure that all my employees are complying with HIPAA laws?” If you can’t say with certainty that your people, processes and safeguards are compliant, you could be facing huge fines and maybe even jail time if something goes wrong.

That’s why we created this unique one-day training event—for employers that aren’t necessarily in the medical profession to learn how they, too, are impacted by the HIPAA laws and could be a target for legal action. And because the chance for slipups and noncompliant activities is many times greater when HIPAA regulations aren’t at the top of your employees’ minds.

Join us and get a crash course on the fundamentals of HIPAA privacy regulations ...

•Learn how HIPAA applies to employees ... and to you
•Master the fundamentals of HIPAA’s Privacy Rule
•Discover the specific circumstances when you can disclose a person’s information without prior consent
•Learn exactly what the HIPAA security rules are—and who they apply to
•How to educate your employees on the relationship between noncompliance and their use of social media
•Learn the importance of identifying who in your company is allowed access to sensitive employee health information and who definitely isn’t
•And much more critical information to keep your company free of violations and out of court

You’ll return to work armed with a plan to self-audit your procedures for the risk of noncompliance, educate your employees about why it is crucial that they act in a compliant manner and walk through the possible ramifications for them and the company if they don’t.

Why do YOU need this critical training?
We’ve all been exposed to the regulations surrounding the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), from standing in line at the local pharmacy to checking in at the doctor’s office.

But HIPAA regulations don’t just apply to doctor’s offices and hospitals. They apply to anyone who comes into contact with sensitive employee, customer or patient information ... whether it’s an intern in human resources or the person who gathers bins of paper documents that need to be shredded in an office building.

Does anyone in your company touch any of the following employee or client information?

If so, you could be liable under HIPAA regulations.

• Names
• Dates directly related to an individual
• Phone or fax numbers
• Email addresses
• Account numbers
• Social Security numbers
• Medical record numbers
• Health insurance beneficiaries
• Web uniform resource locators (URLs)
• Internet protocol (IP) addresses
• Full face photographic images
• Any other unique personal identifiers or characteristics

HIPAA privacy compliance never takes a day off and must be monitored vigilantly. However, we also realize that you have a lot on your plate. That’s why we created this training to only take one day of your time and to make it as enjoyable as it is impactful. Join us and take one much-needed day out of the office to learn and network with your peers. You’ll get recharged about HIPAA privacy laws, and your organization will be better off with the compliance knowledge you bring back with you. It’s a win-win for everyone. Don’t wait ... enroll today.
