A Practical Guide on HIPAA Risk Management: Addressing Threats and Vulnerabilities Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic
Recording Available: Thursday, November 05, 2020
The risk assessment and management measures implemented by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) play a crucial role in mitigating risks and vulnerabilities on the privacy and accuracy of employees’ protected health information (PHI). Organizations that fail to conduct HIPAA risk assessment could incur potential PHI breaches and might be confronted with costly regulatory fines.
With the COVID-19 pandemic continuously affecting healthcare organizations, the importance of reviewing their HIPAA risk assessment and management programs must be underscored. As the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) imposes stricter enforcement actions to HIPAA violators, organizations must also create efficient compliance strategies to avoid drawbacks.
In a LIVE Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders and distinguished professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide a comprehensive discussion of the HIPAA risk assessment and management programs. Speakers will also discuss important privacy considerations during the COVID-19 pandemic and will offer best practices to comply with the changing landscape.
Key issues include:
- HIPAA Privacy Rules: Trends and Updates
- Privacy Considerations During the COVID-19 Pandemic
- Mitigating Red Flags
- Risk Assessment and Management Strategies
