February 19-21, 2013, Washington DC

The National HIPAA Summit focuses on new HIPAA laws and regulations, and timing could not be better with the passing of the final Omnibus Rule. During the Summit, leading regulators from the Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Office for Civil Rights, and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT will share their expertise with attendees over three days of educational sessions.

Mac McMillian, CEO of CynergisTek and Chair of the HIMSS Privacy & Security Policy Task Force, has the honor of participating as one of the HIPAA Privacy Experts. He will co-present with Linda Sanches, Sr. Advisor at OCR, in an informative session, “Lessons Learned From the 2012 Audits”. Together they will present examples from the OCR random audits, trend analysis and lessons learned, providing insight to any attendee trying to improve their own security programs and readiness. Several of the focus areas highlighted in the OCR audit protocol are the direct result of findings from previous breaches and complaints that the OCR has handled as a part of their HIPAA enforcement responsibilities.
