What catches most doctors off guard!

“I have an authorization form that patients sign before releasing information and they can’t see my computer screens or files so I am okay with HIPAA!”

Ignorance is no excuse under the law.

 

Enforcement functions have vastly increased under HIPAA!

People are being audited: due to meaningful use attestation of electronic medical records, as well as record numbers of patient complaints to Health and Human Services about HIPAA violations and implementation of random “desk” audits by the office of civil rights (amongst other reasons).

You must meet all of the HIPAA standards or you could fall in the category called willful neglect that has a minimum $50,000 fine- non-negotiable, up to $1.5 million.

 

A quick review of some of the highlights you need: an adequate HIPAA risk analysis (or you do not have a HIPAA program at all per Washington DC!). A current, up-to-date and periodically reviewed and documented ISAR (now demanded on every meaningful use phase 2 audit which will include 100% of doctors, per Washington DC), a written contingency plan with data recovery and emergency mode operation plus a copy held by an individual off-site from the clinic, an annual audit of your entire HIPAA program, all Omnibus rules of 2013 are required to be functioning in your office-- these update rules were created to plug the holes regarding the use of a patient privacy notice, to redefine business Associates who store or transmit your information and must be contracted and for other areas where they were having problems with breaches, therefore they are looking for these to be functioning in all offices or fines will be likely!...

 

This just scratches the surface! Please be on the webinar to learn about other standards that must be met to avoid major, massive fines!
