WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to avoid fines under the HITECH Act and ensure attorneys and clients alike are protected when dealing with cases in the medical field.
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? If not, you will want to be sure to catch this one-hour webinar!
