Webinar 03/24/20: HIPAA Tips on Working from Home, Telehealth, and Telecommuting

On March 24, 2020, Compliancy Group will be hosting a webinar to help HIPAA-covered entities and their business associates ensure they are fully compliant with HIPAA Rules when working remotely from home and handling protected health information. Compliancy Group will also be explaining the HIPAA Rules that apply to Telehealth and video conferencing.

Many healthcare professionals and business associates are using portable electronic devices to access systems in the office and are spending at least part of the week working remotely or working from home.

The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has seen many companies take the decision to stop employees coming into work and instead are allowing them to use personal or company-owned devices to work from home to reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19.

Most companies handling protected health information (PHI) are working virtually to keep their business up and running and permit telecommuting for some members of the workforce; however, doing so and remaining in HIPAA compliance can be a challenge.

Join Compliancy Group to find out how HIPAA Rules apply when working from home and video conferencing and learn about the HIPAA telehealth rules and to find out how to properly manage your business remotely by implementing an effective compliance program.
