A new Texas privacy law — more stringent than HIPAA — goes into effect Sept. 1. And, the federal government has started a new program of HIPAA privacy audits.
What does this means to you? Quicker response times for records requests, more frequent staff training, privacy risk assessments, policy updates, and steeper fines — even criminal action — for violations.
Tune in to TMA’s new one-hour live webinar to find out what it does mean for your practice. “HIPAA: Reduce Your Risk” takes place Tuesday, July 24, at 6 pm CDT. Matt Murray, MD, former chief medical information officer at Cook Children’s Health Care System, will:
• Reveal where your vulnerabilities may lie;
• Review HIPAA’s security plan and breach reporting requirements;
• Outline the new Texas privacy law; and
• Explain the new national HIPAA privacy audits.
Live Q&A will follow. Register now so you can prepare to meet the Sept. 1 compliance date.
