HIPAA Compliance for Attorneys and Firms: How to Avoid Liability Headaches - On-Demand
Webinar is now available on-demand. NOTE: On-Demand webinars are not eligible for CLE credit.
HIPAA isn't just a concern for healthcare providers and employers -- it's a serious compliance challenge for the attorneys and law firms that work with them.
The HITECH Act has four tiers of monetary penalties, each corresponding to a different degree of culpability, and penalties hit on a per incident basis, subject to an annual cap of $1.5 million for violations of the same provision.
Law firms serving clients in the medical field face the risk of penalties for violations, as well as potential liability for a subcontractor's violations. In addition to contractual liability, a major violation would likely cause significant reputational damage to your firm and result in clients looking elsewhere for legal services – particularly since clients may face liability for your actions.
So are you completely comfortable with your HIPAA compliance status? Join your colleagues for a valuable and timely on-demand webinar on steps to take to keep your practice in the clear. The presenter will explain tools that are available to help you make sure you're in compliance with HIPAA, how to ensure that a HIPAA release is in compliance with the rules, and obligations HIPAA and HITECH place on you as business associates of entities, such as healthcare providers and healthcare plans, covered by HIPAA.

- Tools for patients and their attorneys
