|Working with downstream entities on HIPAA compliance|
Dianne Bourque, partner at Mintz Levin, has a tremendous amount of experience in working with a variety of entities – covered entities, business associates and subcontractors, being bound to HIPAA regulations. As part of HealthITSecurity.com's Oct. 16 (12:30 p.m.) "Working with downstream entities on HIPAA compliance" Webcast, Bourque will explain her experiences with these organizations as they were preparing to comply with the HIPAA Omnibus Rule before Sept. 23 and how they can measure their compliance now that the adherence date has passed. Because HIPAA responsibilities have been spread around the healthcare industry, she will discuss what organizations need to do to ensure HIPAA audit/investigation readiness, especially for newly-targeted entities. Listen in to hear the steps BAs and other downstream entities need to take to remain compliant in the eyes of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
