Complying with changing HIPAA security regulations is imperative, now more than ever.

HIPAA compliance scrutiny for all practices is high, and rightly so. PHI is more valuable to cyber criminals than credit card numbers, as it contains names, birth dates, social security numbers, insurance policy numbers, and, yes, personal medical records.

Save your practice from unintentional breaches and penalties with the HIPAA Handbook 2018—and save yourself from privacy rule violations, which are new focus of federal scrutiny, with prosecution hanging in the balance.

In other words, unless you meet one of the privacy rule’s exceptions, knowingly using, obtaining, or disclosing individually identifiable health information can saddle you with a $50,000 fine, plus civil liabilities. To help define by way of comparison the extent of “knowing” disclosure, egregious misconduct—disclosure for personal gain, for instance—comes at a much heftier cost, carrying a fine of up to $250,000 and imprisonment for up to 10 years.

Referring to case studies of breach analysis, our nationally-recognized HIPAA compliance experts lay out best practices and guide you step-by-step through the dos and don’ts of compliance. We also introduce you to new tools and provide numerous toolkits to facilitate breach reporting and help you to nail down risk assessments, tighten up your EHR privacy and security, reassess your risk analysis plan, prep for audits, streamline MACRA’s Advancing Care Information measures, train your staff, and optimize your 2018 telehealth services.
