HIPAA - HITECH Compliance: Avoid the Wall of Shame

Thursday, March 24, 2011

Jack Anderson


Free Webinar on HIPAA and HITECH Compliance

Getting a notice in the mail from the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) the enforcement arm of Health and Human Services (HHS) is akin to an audit notice from the IRS. 

No matter what the outcome, there is going to be a lot of blood, sweat, and tears.  Medical offices are a prime target for burglars and computers are valuable booty. 

When they contain unprotected patient health information (PHI) the cost to the medical office soars.

On March 30, 2011, David Yandry of Acclaim Networks and Jack Anderson of Compliance Helper will lay out the consequences and a way to avoid them.  Here is the full invitation:

After registering you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Webinar.

A patient data breach of over 500 records requires notification to local newspapers, a report to Health and Human Services, an audit from The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) and posting of your company's name and details on the Wall of Shame, not to mention potential fines and hours of time required to address the demands of the audit.  

Acclaim Networks, your local trusted IT services company, has a new service to help protect you from this nightmare. Join us to find out how easy and affordable it can be to take your practice from zero to compliant (and stay there) with our easy-to-use online system that combines all the pre-drafted policies, procedures and forms you need with assistance from a real, live HIPAA compliance expert to walk you through the process.

We’ll review a case history of a local practice that endured the audit and publicity nightmare over some stolen equipment, and see first-hand the kinds of things the Office of Civil Rights expects you to provide for when they perform a compliance audit.

Then Jack Anderson, a pioneer in delivering compliance and accreditation services over the Internet will show you how our new service can help you get compliant, stay compliant, and prove compliance with the Compliance Meter (tm).

There will be a spirited Q&A session.
