The company will offer a Webinar delivered to your desktop on Tuesday, February 9, 2010 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST. As the new provisions in the HITECH ACT will affect every healthcare organization, this webinar will highlight changes in HIPAA security requirements, gaps found in HIPAA compliance provisions, as well as new penalties for non-compliance.

Paul Reymann, CEO, ReymannGroup, who is one of the nation’s foremost experts on regulatory compliance and information risk management, will review the state of HIPAA, the benefits and challenges of the HITECH Act, and clarify the impact of sleeper provisions associated with new “meaningful use” requirements published by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) at the start of 2010. He will explain how these new requirements can allow organizations to access available stimulus dollars, while demonstrating a streamlined path to compliance.

Attendees will also learn how to obtain stimulus dollars to fund Electronic Health Record (EHR) projects, reduce the risk of medical identify theft, automate compliance reporting, audits, and forensic analysis and comply with federal and state laws and rules for protecting EHRs.
