The next round of HIPAA compliance audits is about to begin in October, and this time OCR is expected to leverage more civil penalties than they did during the 2011 pilot audits. Most entities audited during the pilot did not conform to HIPAA standards -- and two-thirds failed to perform an acceptable security risk assessment. The most common cause of non-compliance was that the entity was "unaware of the requirement."

This webinar recording with healthcare attorney Jonathan Tomes advises you on what a behavioral health practice needs to know to remain HIPAA compliant. You will acquire useful knowledge and solutions to your compliance nightmares.

  • What is HIPAA and why should you care about it?
  • What happens if you don't comply with HIPAA?
  • How do you comply with HIPAA?
  • HIPAA myths and tales from the front lines
