Two Day Seminar On HIPAA 2019 and Beyond (New Orleans, LA - November 14-15, 2019) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

September 12, 2019 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 12, 2019--

The “2-day In-person Seminar On HIPAA 2019 and Beyond” conference has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This two-day seminar will be addressing how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) need to get their HIPAA house in order as HIPAA HITECH is now fully enforced with bipartisan support and the government is not using kid gloves any more.


The seminar will go point by point through the entire HIPAA Security Rule and uncover simple methods to comply and create policy.

The primary goal is to ensure everyone is well educated on what is myth and what is reality with this law, there is so much misleading information all over regarding the do’s and don’ts with HIPAA - I want to add clarity for compliance officers

It will speak on specific experiences from over 18 years of experience in working as an outsourced compliance auditor, expert witness on multiple HIPAA cases, and thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information.

More importantly, this will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.

It will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule and any other applicable updates for 2019.
