HIPAA 2016 Phase 2 Audits: Are You Ready?

09-19-2016 01:55 PM CET | Health & Medicine

Press release from: TeleMental Health Institute Inc.

HIPAA & HITECH now require additional security and privacy precautions to accommodate increased threats of digital hacking and hijacking with the use of all technologies. Adding (rather large) teeth to previous HIPAA rulings, stepped-up HIPAA audits are leading to disciplinary actions that involve serious consequences, including public embarrassment and significantly higher penalties. Clinic, small group and independent practitioners are especially vulnerable.

Dr. Marlene Maheu, a nationally renowned telehealth expert, will interview Mr. Marc Haskelson for a 1-hour, live (and recorded) webinar titled, “The New HIPAA Phase 2 Audit: Are You Fully Prepared?” on September 19, 2016 at 2pm Eastern time.

This FREE and fully recorded webinar will feature Mr. Marc Haskelson who will deliver an easy HIPAA update, explain the HIPAA audit process, then outline simple steps to implement immediately. (For current telepractitioners and other professionals seeking to deliver treatment online, issues related to Skype and several HIPAA-compliant alternatives will also be covered.) In a remarkably fascinating hour, you'll have what you need to know to be compliant with current HIPAA rulings.

Dr. Maheu states, “Most of our colleagues are aware of HIPAA, but not clear about current updates to their mandates. With HIPAA Phase 2 audits in full force right now, it is important for all practitioners to learn the few simple strategies they can use to be fully compliant. This webinar will help them understand and get up to speed so as to avoid federal investigation and prosecution”.

Dr. Maheu has published extensively on the topic of HIPAA and telemental health. She has educated more than 15,000 clinicians with her in-person training. Dr. Maheu has been a leader in telemental health since 1994, she is uniquely qualified to guide you or your organization in finding your perfect and most profitable niche in a market that is rapidly expanding. The TeleMental Health Institute’s webinar, “The New HIPAA Phase 2 Audit: Are You Fully Prepared?” will broadcast on September 19, 2016 at 2pm Eastern time, 11am Pacific time. (The event will be fully recorded and available for anyone who cannot attend the webinar.) The webinar laos includes access to a handout, presentation slides, and 1- CE hour for most behavioral disciplines. Register today at http://telehealth.org/webinars/.
