OnDemand Webinar (88 minutes)

Get a firm grasp of HIPAA laws and how recent changes apply to your workplace.

HIPAA is more important than ever. With both data breaches and HHS penalties on the rise, HR specialists need a firm grasp of the law and its implications for their workplace and health plan. This topic will describe the history of the law and recent changes under the HITECH Act, how the law applies in the workplace and with respect to the employer-sponsored health plans, what employers need to know to stay in compliance, and what happens when there is a data breach. HR specialists should walk away from the webinar understanding what they need to do to protect their company from steep HIPAA penalties.
