Clearwater Compliance conducted another resoundingly successful HIPAA Audit Prep BootCamp™ in San Diego, CA on March 21, 2013, that drew attendees from across the country. The BootCamp™ was designed to provide an intensive educational experience about the HIPAA-HITECH regulations for professionals responsible for ensuring their healthcare organizations, or service providers to, become and remain compliant with those comprehensive regulations.
“The BootCamp provided a great overview of HIPAA and helped remove a lot of the confusion around HIPAA, HITECH and Omnibus Rules. It helped break down the different components of the regulations in a way that was easy to understand." -- Robert Norton, Healthcare Channel Specialist, Symantec Corporation
The fifth in a series of live sessions, Clearwater HIPAA Audit Prep BootCamps™ have sold out in every city in which they were held. Due to customer demand, Clearwater conducted its first “virtual” BootCamp in February to overwhelming approval of its attendees, resulting in the scheduling of a second virtual format in April. The Virtual BootCamp™ will be delivered in a series of three, three-hour live webinars that privacy and security professionals can attend from anywhere, providing an opportunity for those whose budgets or time-out-of-the-office will not allow for travel and the benefits of in-person attendance.
“We are delighted with the outcomes of our in-person and virtual events,” reported Bob Chaput, CEO and Founder of Clearwater Compliance. “Our attendees have given both formats rave reviews”.
“This is a solid program with great education. It allows you to invest in a long term program.” --Steve Klimback, Director of IT, The Angeles Clinic Research Institute.
“The BootCamp was a great introduction to a very complicated topic. It has made me more aware of the things I need to be concerned with. It has also made me realize we are going to need help from knowledgeable resources to get through this.” -- Steven Snyder, CIO/VP of IT, Mercy Home for Boys & Girls
