Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) November 05, 2013
Doctors, clinicians and medical office professionals could now face penalties of up to $50,000 and jail time for “knowingly” violating Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act rules.
The latest HIPAA update, which went into effect on Sept. 23, 2013, has stricter rules on handling electronic protected health information and increased penalties for individuals and organizations that break those rules. Logan Solutions is putting its medical know-how and technological savvy to work to help small and mid-sized medical practices understand the latest HIPAA rules, the penalties for violating them and how to avoid committing a violation.
On Nov. 13, Logan Solutions will present a 30-minute webinar “HIPAA Risk Assessment: What You Need to Know,” with founder Paul Logan, CRNP, and Sentry Healthcare Informatics co-founder and CEO Rich Devlin.
“With monetary penalties of up to $50,000 per HIPAA violation, most small and mid-sized medical practices can’t afford to have a doctor, clinician or other staff member make a mistake,” said Logan. “It’s vital for every medical practice to understand the ins and outs of HIPAA compliance and use technology to protect its patients' private medical information and its own liability.”
During the webinar, Logan and Devlin will explain the details of the latest HIPAA update, the most common HIPAA compliance problems and how technology can help you get your HIPAA risk assessment right.
