Nashville, TN (PRWEB) August 22, 2013
Clearwater Compliance has announced it will host another of its HIPAA Compliance BootCamp™ events in Philadelphia on September 12, to provide an intensive educational experience focused on HIPAA-HITECH regulations.
This nationally renowned curriculum is geared toward professionals who are responsible for ensuring their healthcare organizations become and remain compliant with the HIPAA Privacy, Security and HITECH Breach Notification regulations. The one-day BootCamp™ uses a highly interactive classroom setting to tackle HIPAA-HITECH fundamentals, while offering practical tools and support for organizations to apply their learning.
Clearwater has reported record attendance at recent BootCamp events as organizations make last minute preparations for the fast-approaching September 23 compliance deadline. On that date, enforcement of the changes to the HIPAA-HITECH regulations as outlined in the Omnibus Final Rule will officially begin. The Office for Civil Rights has announced its intention to “vigorously enforce” the law after the deadline.
“Most organizations simply don’t know if they are ready for life after Ominbus starting September 23,” said Bob Chaput, founder and CEO of Clearwater Compliance. “Our BootCamp™ format is a proven way to quickly assess HIPAA-HITECH priorities so that you aren’t placing your business at significant risk. It’s never been more critical for Covered Entities and Business Associates to know where they stand and to establish a plan that documents good faith efforts to become and remain compliant under the law.”
The Clearwater HIPAA Compliance BootCamp™ is designed to help organizations understand the regulations, recognize high priority gaps and formulate a step-by-step implementation strategy and key progress metrics for enhancing compliance efforts. Clearwater has once again assembled an all-star faculty of experts to present and discuss the information: Bob Chaput, CEO and Founder of Clearwater Compliance; Mary Chaput, Chief Compliance Officer of Clearwater Compliance; David Finn, Health Information Technology Officer for Symantec; James C. Pyles, J.D. – D.C.-based Healthcare Regulatory and Compliance Expert; Meredith R. Phillips, Chief Information Privacy & Security Officer for Henry Ford Health System; Joseph D. Marasco, Supervisory Special Agent, FBI, Cyber Intrusion Task Force; Russell Handorf, FBI Cyber Squad Computer Scientist; and Gregory J. Ehardt, JD, HIPAA Compliance Officer in the Office of General Counsel and Assistant Professor in the Health Care Administration Program at Idaho State University
