HIPAA Changes and Planning 2020


This session is designed to provide an intensive, one day training in HIPAA Privacy Rule compliance designed for both the seasoned HIPAA professional as well as the individual newly appointed to the position of HIPAA Privacy Officer.

While the HIPAA rules have been in place for years now, we will be addressing how practice/business managers or compliance officers need to get their HIPAA house in order, as HIPAA is now fully enforced and the government is not using kid gloves anymore. In addition, there are changes in other regulations that interact with HIPAA requirements, and that require consideration in your planning. It will also address major 2019 changes taking place with the Health and Human Services regarding the enforcement of the HIPAA law as well as detailed discussions on the Phase 2 audit process and current events regarding HIPAA cases (both in courtrooms and from real-life Audits).

Our instructor - Jonathan P. Tomes has over 32 years of experience in working as HIPAA Compliance auditor and has been an expert witness on multiple HIPAA cases. He'll thoroughly explain on HOW and in WHAT scenarios patients can claim for cash remedies. He wrote more than 60 books on HIPAA. More importantly Jon will show you how to limit the risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.

Golden Gate Bridge

The Golden Gate Bridge is a California icon gracing San Francisco Bay. It is the most photographed site in the city, with the orange structure backed by blue water, or in many cases, peaking through low lying cloud. At night, the flood-lit structure is equally striking.

Alcatraz Island

The historic and notorious Alcatraz penitentiary, located on Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay, is one of America's most infamous prisons. It operated for almost thirty years, closing in 1963 and re-opening as a tourist attraction in 1973. Some of America's most well-known criminals were inmates here, including Al Capone and the "Birdman," who would later form the basis for the fictional movie The Birdman of Alcatraz.

Fisherman's Wharf

Fisherman's Wharf is one of San Francisco's most popular tourist areas. If this is your first visit to the city and you only have a day or two to see the sights, Fisherman's Wharf is one of the best places to visit. This old section, once the Little Italy of San Francisco, is known for its shops, restaurants, and beautiful setting along the waterfront. It's a fun place to stroll around and get a taste for the city. From here, you can also take a sightseeing cruise for spectacular views of the city, or organize a fishing charter.

Palace of Fine Arts

The Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco is the last remaining structure from the 1915 Panama Pacific Exposition. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this classical looking building is beautifully situated on a lagoon that reflects the mirror image on the surface of the calm water, while ducks and geese drift by.
