HCCA Healthcare Enforcement Compliance Institute
October 25-28, 2015 | Washington, DC


CynergisTek VP of Compliance David Holtzman will co-present with Iliana Peters of the OCR and Kevin Moriarty of FTC at the first-ever HCCA Healthcare Enforcement Compliance Institute. This event, designed for healthcare lawyers and compliance officers, will provide a forum to discuss regulatory changes and compliance best practices.

Their pre-conference session, “Health Information Privacy and Security Standards: Case Examples of Federal Enforcement and Tools for Healthcare Organizations to Reduce the Risks of Unauthorized Disclosure,” will cover case examples of OCR’s enforcement of the HIPAA Rules, recent FTC consent agreements and how to assess an organization for compliance best practices.

Session objectives:

  • Unauthorized disclosure of health information creates harm through identify theft or insurance fraud. Learn through case examples the strategic approach HHS/OCR takes in enforcement of the HIPAA Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rules.
  • The FTC protects consumers from unfair and deceptive trade practices. Two recent consent agreements involving disclosure of health care data demonstrate how company information privacy and security standards set enforceable consumer expectations.
  • Risk based frameworks that assess health information privacy and security safeguards identify threats and vulnerabilities to data. Learn how compliance pros assess an organization for meeting regulatory standards and industry best practices.
