A webinar on HIPAA and HITECH compliance

A webinar under privacy expert Rebecca Herold will be held on Wednesday, April 27th, which will focus on the real solutions to the 4 key areas that your business needs to focus on for HIPAA HITECH compliance. These areas include assessment of your risks and vulnerabilities, development of policies and procedures, encrypting ePHI for client data protection and having a breach notification plan in case of a problem.

The topics which will be addressed by the industry experts include

Risk Assessments – ACR 2 Solutions, will discuss identifying, quantifying and assessing information security risks using automated technology developed under federal sponsorship for high value military and civilian networks. Risk assessment is mandatory under HIPAA, GLBA, FISMA and other statutes, and is also part of the “Meaningful Use” qualification to receive subsidies under the HITECH act.

Policies and Procedures – Compliance Helper (CH) provides turn-key solutions for those needing policies and procedures based on content developed by Rebecca Herold and Associates. The combination of the ACR 2 Gap report and the Compliance Helper Prepare and Care solution creates a simple and organized process for organizations to become fully HIPAA HITECH compliant.

Email Encryption – The Industry Radar in partnership with industry leading email encryption provider, ZixCorp, and hosting partner Greenview Data, has developed the RadarMail 360 suite with email encryption solutions for both outbound and inbound communication to meet any organization’s needs, regardless of size.

Breach Remediation – ID Experts will discuss the need for a comprehensive data breach response plan and describe best practices for healthcare data breach notification and patient care. They will also review the HHS-mandated risk assessment requirement for breaches involving protected health information (PHI).
