Webinar: Do I Need to be HIPAA Compliant?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) sets national standards to protect sensitive patient health information and to prevent that information from being disclosed without an individual’s knowledge or consent. HIPAA applies to healthcare providers, health plans, and healthcare clearinghouses, which are classed as HIPAA-covered entities.

There is a misconception that only HIPAA-covered entities need to ensure they are compliant with the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Breach Notification, and Omnibus Rules; however, HIPAA also applies to business associates of HIPAA-covered entities. A business associate is any third party that provides products or services to HIPAA-covered entities that involves contact with protected health information (PHI) in any form.

Achieving and maintaining HIPAA compliance is vital for all HIPAA-covered entities and business associates. The HHS’ Office for Civil Rights and state Attorneys General have the authority to impose financial penalties and other sanctions if non-compliance with the HIPAA Rules is discovered, and many organizations have discovered to their cost that compliance with the HIPAA Rules is not optional.

If you work in healthcare in any capacity, it is almost certain that you need to be HIPAA compliant. If you are in any doubt, Compliancy Group is hosting a webinar on August 17, 2022, to answer the question, do I need to be HIPAA compliant?
