Preparing for Upcoming HIPAA Changes and their Impact to Your Business

This is a must-attend webinar if you perform IT or other consulting services for or store information of customers who are healthcare providers, such as doctors, dentists, hospitals, retirement/rehab facilities, or other "Covered Entities" as defined in the HIPAA regulations. On January 17, 2013, the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services issued final regulations that go into effect March 26, 2013. Failure to comply with the new regulations can incur penalties of up to $50,000 per violation and up to $1,500,000 per year. Join us for this webinar to arm yourself with the practical knowledge you need to avoid incurring substantial penalties and potentially losing important customers.

Learn how to best determine if you are a "Business Associate" covered under HIPAA. Hear a summary of changes impacting solution providers who are Business Associates and how to comply. Find out about required Notices of Privacy Practices, penalties for non-compliance, and the compliance date and transition timeline for the upcoming HIPAA changes.
