As covered entities, hospices and home care providers are required to manage patients’ electronic protected health information (EPHI) and paper-based medical records in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) privacy and security rules.  Noncompliance can lead to substantial fines (up to $1.5 million for privacy breaches), negative publicity, compromised patients, unhappy families, and damaged reputations.  Does your organization lawfully manage electronic and traditional PHI?  Have you established policies and strategies to ensure HIPAA compliance?  Are your business associates, including physicians and subcontractors, in compliance?  Join us to learn about records risks, policies, and compliance management best practices for hospices and home care providers.

Attendance certificate provided to self-report CE credits.
