Washington, DC US

Devoted to the fundamentals of HIPAA compliance in the health center setting, the first day will begin with an overview of the HIPAA rules and regulations, followed by an introduction to business associates, including details on appropriately identifying your health center’s business associates and developing business associate agreements. Additionally, FTLF attorneys will lead discussions on the role of the Privacy Officer and Security Officer, creating a HIPAA work plan, and tips on developing a more robust HIPAA compliance program. 

Session topics will include:

  • Overview of the HIPAA Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rules
  • Identification of business associates and developing/reviewing business associate agreements

Building on the HIPAA basics from Day One, Day Two of this workshop will examine the issues presented, identify the relevant federal laws and regulations and recommend best practices for maintaining compliance and managing risk in your health center. Attendees should expect a lively conversation based on relevant case studies and real-life examples.
