Now that the deadline for compliance with the Omnibus Final Rule has passed, the stakes have officially been raised – Bob Chaput, CEO & Founder of Clearwater Compliance
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) October 16, 2013
Clearwater Compliance has announced it has added another of its in-person HIPAA Compliance BootCamp™ events at the Ritz Carlton in St. Louis on December 11, 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 set record attendance at its most recent in-person BootCamp, held in Philadelphia. Now that enforcement of the changes to the HIPAA-HITECH regulations as outlined in the Omnibus Final Rule have officially begun, more and more organizations want to make sure they are really prepared.
“Now that the deadline for compliance with the Omnibus Final Rule has passed, the stakes have officially been raised. Organizations who aren’t prepared are placing themselves at significant risk,” said Bob Chaput, founder and CEO of Clearwater Compliance. “Our BootCamp™ format is a proven means for leaders responsible for HIPAA-HITECH compliance to gain the knowledge and resources needed to understand the requirements and to assess their priorities. 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; 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.
Specifically, BootCamp attendees will receive:
– Interaction with nationally recognized, fully credentialed HIPAA-HITECH experts in a small classroom setting.
– Comprehensive instruction on HIPAA Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rule Requirements, as amended by the Omnibus Final Rule.
– A curriculum designed to equip teams with practical, actionable activities to enable them to recognize high priority gaps and develop prioritized remediation plans.
– Complimentary toolkit and resources to develop or strengthen participating organizations’ compliance programs
