DecisionHealth, the award-winning source of healthcare news, analysis and education, has chosen Clearwater Compliance Founder and CEO, Bob Chaput, to present an educational webinar on “Mastering the Ins and Outs of Meaningful Uses’ Security Risk Analysis” to its constituents.
“Mr. Chaput has built, grown and sold a number of businesses serving industries with strict regulatory requirements,” said Sean Weiss, Chief Compliance Officer and Vice President, Professional Services for DecisionHealth. “He speaks and writes extensively on HIPAA and HITECH security matters and is a recognized HIPAA-HITECH data security expert. We’re thrilled that he has agreed to present this timely, and much needed, subject to our provider audience.”
In this 60-minute webinar scheduled for Thursday August 2nd at 2 p.m. ET, Mr. Chaput will teach listeners how to:
“The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said they were going to audit, and now audits letters are being received by some number of recipients of Meaningful Use incentive monies,” Mr. Chaput stated. “Any recipient who attested to meeting the core set of Meaningful Use requirements will be subject to the False Claims Act if they have not met all those requirements, including conducting a bona fide Security Risk Analysis. This educational webinar will alert those providers and hospitals who are still working on Meaningful Use requirements to avoid the pitfalls that come with insufficient understanding of what comprises a bona fide Security Risk Analysis.”
“I couldn’t be more pleased to work with a company of DecisionHealth’s reputation,” added Mr. Chaput. “Their dedication to helping healthcare entities navigate the complexities of regulations couldn’t be more aligned with my own goals. I’m looking forward to providing expert guidance on how to properly tackle the security risk analysis, what those requirements are, what to look for when pairing up with a risk analysis expert and how to conduct the analysis according to HIPAA requirements.”
