Time: 10:00 AM PST | 01:00 PM EST
I will address specific litigated cases I have worked where the covered entity had to pay out 
nasty fines to the Federal government and high settlements to patients affected by 
inappropriate usage of the EMR system - I will also address situations where the covered 
entity DID NOT receive any fines or judgements (even in the event of a breach or malicious 
actions) due to the fact they were using the systems in a "compliant manner" I will also be 
addressing how practice managers (or compliance offers) need to understand how to properly 
utilize the EMR system for HIPAA compliance.
I will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule and any other applicable updates for 
2017 and beyond. There are an enormous amount of issues and risks for covered entities and 
business associates these days. I will speak on specific experiences from over 17 years of 
experience in working as an outsourced compliance auditor, expert witness on multiple HIPAA 
cases, and thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful 
disclosures of private health information. More importantly I will show you how to limit those 
risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices. 
Why should you Attend:
EMR systems may be "HIPAA Compliant" out of the box but if not utilized properly they are NOT 
Are you using your EMR system the way it should be utilized for HIPAA Compliance?
Are you aware there are serious legal consequences for improper usage of EMR systems?
An analogy would be, General Motors makes a car with a 5-star safety rating but if you don't 
fasten the seatbelt, the car isn't very safe anymore
Omnibus has changed the HIPAA landscape for good
This once rarely enforced law has changed and you need to know what's going on
Protect your practice or business
These day's trial attorney's pose a higher risk than the Federal government
State laws are now in place increasing liability for patient remedies
