EMR Legal announced today that it will conduct a comprehensive workshop April 16-17, 2014, in Dallas to help organizations become HIPAA and HITECH Act compliant and audit ready.

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For HIPAA violations, DHHS has been imposing huge civil money penalties, ranging from $100,000 to $4.3 million, on such organizations as small physician practices, hospices, dermatology practices, major health systems, health plans, and business associates. DHHS almost always cites one or more of the following areas of noncompliance:

  • Failure to perform a risk analysis.
  • Failure to update a risk analysis.
  • Failure to implement reasonable and appropriate security measures, including adopting policies and procedures.
  • Failure to train the workforce in HIPAA.

Don't end up on the DHHS Big Breachers Wall of Shame! Our experts will help attendees determine where they are not compliant and what they need to do to get compliant-and will make certain that they have all that they need to do so. Included with the cost of the workshop are the following:

  • HIPAA Gap Analysis review, report, and consultation.
  • The Complete HIPAA Policies and Procedures Guide with accompanying CD, including more than 65 editable policies.
  • Your Happy HIPAA Book.
  • Basic HIPAA Training Video and Workbook, 6th ed.
  • Completed HIPAA Risk Assessment/Risk Analysis.
  • HIPAA Certification after completion of assigned tasks and EMR Legal approval of documentation.

Because of our ongoing commitment to helping organizations become and remain HIPAA compliant, EMR Legal offers seminars, webinars, private training, and presentations for national organizations.

"I started working on compliance issues in health information actually before HIPAA in 1990," said Jonathan P. Tomes, President of EMR Legal/Veterans Press. "I was writing and teaching compliance with the pre-HIPAA health information compliance laws and regulations. I wrote the first book on how to comply with HIPAA, The Compliance Guide to HIPAA and the DHHS Regulations. I have continued writing, teaching, consulting, giving legal opinions, and testifying as an expert witness on HIPAA issues fulltime since 1998 and continue to develop new products and services to help organizations become and remain HIPAA compliant. My articles have appeared in Journal of AHIMA, Health Data Management, Medical Claims Management, Credit Card Management, Journal of the Healthcare Financial Management Association, Journal of Health Care Finance, Journal of Health Care Compliance, American Medical News, and ACCA Docket, among others.
