SPEAKER: Brian L Tuttle

OVERVIEW:
I will be talking to specifics of HIPAA and the emergency room setting, do's and don'ts as well as dispelling myth vs reality. This lesson will be addressing how compliance officers need to get their HIPAA house in order as HIPAA is now fully enforced and the government is not using kid gloves any more. It will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule and any other applicable updates for 2016 and beyond. There are an enormous amount of issues and risks for hospitals these days especially with the new legislation involving patient cash remedies for wrongful disclosure.

I will speak on specific experiences from over 17 years of experience in working as an outsourced compliance auditor, expert witness on HIPAA cases within the ER, and thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information. More importantly I will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.

Why should you Attend:
- What can and can't we do in the hectic emergency room with patient information?
- What are the new liabilities involved?
- How can we ensure security but also ensure patient care?
- This once rarely enforced law has changed and you need to know what's going on!
- What factors might spurn a HIPAA audit? …are you doing these things?
- Why are the Feds enforcing after all these years?
- State laws are now also more strict increasing liability for patient remedies!

We will be discussing some of the changes taking place in Washington with the Health and Human Services in regards to the enforcement of the HIPAA laws already on the books. I will go over some of the new changes specifically affecting the emergency room setting I will also be discussing factors might cause an unwanted visit or letter from the Office of Civil Rights and how to prepare for a potential audit
