Why you need to have a set of HIPAA Policies and Procedures-By AtoZ Compliance

April 11th, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT

If being HIPAA compliant applies to your business, then we have the right solutions for you in this webinar.

This session will explain why for the cost-conscious health care organization, the HIPAA risk analysis policies and procedures can have multiple uses. Understand;

  • Why all areas should be addressed for becoming HIPAA compliant
  • Why HIPAA regulations require covered entities and business associates to have a set of policies and procedures directing the workforce to perform their tasks in a controlled environment
  • That if there is a breach, the health care organization needs to demonstrate that it has proactively implemented procedures to keep penalties to a minimum

Why Should You Attend:

There are three situations where having a set of HIPAA policies and procedures are needed:

First, the policies and procedures become a good reference to ensure that all areas are addressed for becoming HIPAA compliant.

Second, the HIPAA regulations REQUIRE covered entities and business associates to have a set of policies and procedures directing the workforce to perform their tasks in a controlled environment.  Having a set of policies and procedures is positive evidence of the health care organization exercising due diligence.

Third, if there is a breach, the health care organization needs to demonstrate that it has proactively implemented a comprehensive set of HIPAA policies and procedures to keep any penalties to a minimum
