CynergisTek CEO Mac McMillan to Speak at Upcoming Events

Mid Central Regional, November 8th in Louisville, KY

Gulf Coast Regional Conference, December 13th in Houston, TXHcca-logo

CynergisTek continues to participate in industry association events to help educate healthcare IT professionals on how to better understand all of the regulatory requirements. On Friday, November 8th, Mac McMillan will present, “Omnibus Effect – Understanding What Has Changed” at the Mid Central Regional Compliance Conference to help local HCCA members understand how the Omnibus Rule impacts HIPAA Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rules. During this informative session, McMillan will provide guidance of how organizations can be in compliance with the rule and give an outlook of what enforcement will look like now that the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) can hold covered entities and business associates accountable.

McMillan will also present at the Gulf Coast Regional Compliance Conference on Friday, December 13th. At this conference he will review the big picture of compliance changes in an informative session, “Game Changers: Impacts of Omnibus Rule & OCR Audits”. This session will review the ever-changing security landscape caused by complex regulations, random compliance audits and heightened enforcement. First, McMillan will review the changes that the Omnibus Rule imposes for covered entities and business associates, and then he will review the findings and trends from OCRs pilot random audit program. He will provide many key takeaways that can be applied as valuable lessons that help healthIT professionals improve their overall compliance with HIPAA.
