Webinar: July 20, 2022: Compliance vs. Security: Why you Need Both to be HIPAA Compliant

Healthcare providers, health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and business associates of those entities that come into contact with protected health information (PHI) are required to ensure policies, processes, and people are compliant with the Rules of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Ensuring you have a good security posture is an important part of HIPAA compliance. The HIPAA Security Rule requires HIPAA-regulated entities to have appropriate safeguards in place to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of ePHI, and to manage risks to protected health information and reduce them to a low and acceptable level.

Ensuring you have a good security posture has never been more important. Cyber threat actors have stepped up their attacks on the healthcare industry and data breaches are occurring at record levels. Further, following the ‘Safe Harbor’ update to the HITECH Act, if you are able to demonstrate you have implemented recognized security practices, you will be protected against fines, sanctions, and extensive audits and investigations by the HHS’ Office for Civil Rights.

To help you on your compliance journey and with your security efforts, Compliancy Group is hosting a webinar that will explain the ins and outs of compliance and cybersecurity, and why both are necessary for patient privacy and your practice’s security.

During the webinar, Compliancy Group will explain how HIPAA compliance can be simplified, you will be walked through the regulation, and will be provided with actionable tips that you can implement within your practice today.

 3 learning objectives of the webinar:

  1. Why compliance and security are BOTH required for HIPAA compliance.
  2. How HIPAA and security help protect your patients.
  3. What you can implement in your practice now to avoid breaches and fines.
