In-House HIPAA – Pros and Cons Webinar – Time and money are in short supply these days and it’s no secret that healthcare organizations have had to make IT budget trade-offs to cover all the activities they plan to tackle in 2014 – Stage-2 Meaningful Use attestation, ICD-10 compliance, and a risk-based data security program, to name a few.  Most realize that it’s not a wise idea to do an insufficient job of securing protected health information (PHI). In fact, a missing or insufficient risk assessment was the #1 finding of the OCR’s random audit program in 2012. So, many are hoping to save money by conducting risk assessments internally.

In this webinar, we’ll address the pros and cons of ‘in-house HIPAA compliance’ by covering these issues:

• Challenges of doing in-house risk assessments
• Examples of self-risk assessment tools – pros and cons of each
• How to determine if you need third-party services
• How to conduct a risk/compliance assessment
• Common issues we see with risk/compliance assessments.
