Participate in this webinar to understand the power behind PopIQ’s user-friendly yet robust Big Data solution.
Business Associates: How to Differentiate Your Organization Using HIPAA Compliance – Vendors that provide services to health care providers and health insurers are under increasing pressure to protect confidential patient/member information and certify compliance with HIPAA. These “business associates” must comply with numerous data privacy and security requirements under HIPAA and state law, and their ability to do so is often a key factor health care companies use when selecting a vendor. To stand out and make the sale, business associates need to be able to demonstrate robust HIPAA compliance and sufficient policies, procedures and protocols to protect their client’s sensitive data. This webinar will address what business associates need to do to comply with HIPAA and how to differentiate your organization from the competition using HIPAA compliance.
