As a small medical practice HIPAA governs what you can and cannot do with patient records. This course will teach you everything you need to know to protect those records using HIPAA standards. Covered topics include different types of data breaches, protecting patient records, storing patient data (including your online EHR company), and data security including for telemedicine. There will be many real-world examples showing how security and HIPAA can be breached even in small clinics, and the consequences of such breaches. This webinar will give you the same quality and type of information that larger medical offices rely on.
This is not a step by step IT nerd level course. It’s designed to help you learn what you actually need and what to ask your IT person or company, so they don’t over sell you or, even worse, not even offer what you need.
Topics covered in this webinar:
- HIPAA – what is it? Why do we care?
- What is a data breach? What happens if we have a data breach?
- Protecting patient records: What kinds of records need to be protected and when?
- “I don’t care, I have insurance”. We’ll talk about insurance, what you need and why
- Data Security – There are many levels of IT security and we will cover what you need in terms you will understand. We will cover 12-15 different IT topics.
- Security concerns and necessary security for conducting telemedicine visits
