HIPAA Security Update

January 25, 2023

90 minutes

1.8 CCB CEUs

Healthcare is the #1 target of cyber-attacks, and the threat continually increases. Your HIPAA security program is your defense, and the key to maintaining continuity of care. In this webinar, we will illustrate why the HIPAA Security Risk Analysis is the best way to identify and reduce security risks and prevent cyber-attacks. We will also address the 2021 HITECH amendment’s Recognized Security Practices for covered entities and business associates: what providers can and should implement, and how doing so can yield favorable results after a breach. This webinar will also cover new and emerging risks from the Office for Civil rights, news coverage, and best practices.

February 22, 2023

90 minutes

1.8 CCB CEUs

Your compliance program is only as strong as the culture behind it - and the knowledge and buy-in of your team. It takes year-round activities and awareness to support that culture. In this webinar, we will discuss approaches to plan a fun and engaging Compliance Week for your staff. Whether it's been a year since you held Compliance Week - or whether compliance has been back-burnered during the pandemic and your culture needs a boost - it's time to schedule a Compliance Week!
 
Learn how to plan a Compliance Week that includes employee feedback, and reinforces compliance as a positive force in your organization.

SNF Compliance Update

April 19, 2023

90 minutes

1.8 CCB CEUs

1.5 NAB CEUs

It’s been a long road since the Affordable Care Act mandated compliance and ethics programs for nursing homes in 2010. Since then, we have had rules issued; enforcement delayed; a pandemic; and, as of October 24, 2022, enforcement via CMS survey. Compliance is never easy in the highly regulated world of long-term care – but it has only gotten harder since this mandate was announced.
 
In this webinar, we will discuss the status of compliance and ethics programs for nursing homes; review other reasons to comply (DOJ, OIG, OCR, etc.); walk through a step-by-step process to implement or review your program; and identify best practices for a compliance program that lasts.
