How The HITECH Act Raises the Ante on HIPAA Security Rule Compliance from Data Mountain LLC on Vimeo.

Webinar Description:

HIPAA Security Rule compliance for Covered Entities (CEs) was April 2005! In more modern times, Business Associates (BAs) become statutorily obligated to comply with the law in February 2010.

Many CEs have ignored the law for the last five years. A majority of BAs are not even aware of their new obligations under the law. Will compliance change? — Most experts think so and so do we!

The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act has been called a "game changer" because it significantly strengthens many aspects of the HIPAA Security Rule (and Privacy Rule), including the penalties that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) could impose for violations of the HIPAA rules as well as enforcement.

As a visible demonstration of seriousness, HHS has begun posting Data Breach Notifications/Violations, required by law, on its web site.

This webinar is designed to help CEs and BAs understand the major changes brought about by The HITECH Act and help these organizations get started on their HIPAA-HITECH compliance programs, especially as their relate to ePHI data protection.
