The promulgation of the Omnibus Final Rule (OFR) and the short amount of time for Covered Entities and Business Associates to assure their compliance programs will meet the new requirements make the Institute a 'must attend’ event. –Bob Chaput
NASHVILLE, TENN. (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
Clearwater Compliance CEO and founder Bob Chaput announced today that the company will be attending and exhibiting at the Health Care Compliance Association’s (HCCA) 17th Annual Compliance Institute. The Institute – the single most comprehensive compliance conference designed specifically to meet the needs of today's health care compliance professional – convenes next week at the Gaylord National in National Harbors, Maryland.
“With the recent promulgation of the Omnibus Final Rule (OFR) and the relatively short amount of time for Covered Entities and Business Associates to assure their compliance programs will meet the new requirements, the Institute is a ‘must attend’ event,” Chaput said. “In addition to the impact of the OFR, healthcare reform, hospital physician alignment, compliance effectiveness, and HIPAA privacy/data breach are all adding complexity to the challenges facing compliance professionals.”
“There is plenty for compliance professionals to be concerned about and I’m sure they’ll hear about that in excruciating detail during the Institute,” Chaput added. “However, with the recent release of our free Clearwater OFR consistent CE and BA ReadinessCheck™ applications, compliance professionals have a straight-forward path for determining the extent to which their programs are deficient, as well as clear direction on what to fix and how to fix it.”
Clearwater Compliance will be exhibiting at Booth #2 and invites all attendees to learn more about how Clearwater experts can help them assure their programs meet the requirements of the OFR by the September 2013 deadline. If you are handling Protected Health Information and are serious about protecting the privacy of that information, Clearwater’s industry-leading web-based application software solutions can be the key to a good-night’s sleep.
