HCAOA Webinars


Protect Your Patients, Protect Your Workers, Protect Your Business
As the world becomes increasingly connected, HIPAA compliance becomes challenging for care providers. While social media can be a boon for care providers looking to provide easy access to information, one wrong picture could mean a major violation. Similarly, failure to protect your patients' data from hackers or other cyber threats could lead to business-ending OCR fines. This month and next, we have a series of webinars, led by Liam Degnan of Compliancy Group, that will outline best practices for HIPAA Compliance in the digital age:
HIPAA & Cybersecurity: Do I Need to be HIPAA compliant?
Date: May 30, 2019
Time:  2:00pm EST
Presented By: Liam Degnan, Compliancy Group
In this webinar, our goal is to break down HIPAA compliance by walking you through the ins and outs of the regulation since the moment it was enacted in 1996. Through the years, HIPAA has undergone significant revisions and amendments. For that reason, it's essential to keep up-to-date with the latest regulatory changes. Though it was once just another regulation, HIPAA has become a cultural issue for health care organizations of all kinds, affecting how to run a practice and the means of doing business.
Now, you may be asking yourself, "Do I Need to be HIPAA Compliant?"
Tune into this exclusive webinar to find out what you can be doing about your HIPAA compliance to protect your practices from OCR audits and fines!
Social Media and HIPAA Compliance: Protecting Your Practice in the Digital Age 
Date: June 25, 2019
Time:  2:00pm EST
Presented By: Liam Degnan, Compliancy Group
Managing social media use and HIPAA compliance can lead to some of the most common misunderstandings healthcare providers face. Employees who aren't properly trained on HIPAA and social media can expose your organization to HIPAA violations and costly fines!
Whether your practice is using Facebook to attract new clients, or your employees are posting about their workday on Twitter, improper use of social media can lead to major HIPAA violations. Especially now that smart phones and access to apps like Instagram and Snapchat are on the rise, more of these violations have been making the headlines than ever before.
The question becomes: How can your business use social media without violating HIPAA privacy and security requirements?
In this webinar, we outlined exactly how to protect your business by managing how your employees use social media. You'll get concrete examples of how to create effective policies surrounding uses of phones and social media around the office, as well as real life examples of HIPAA breaches that have occurred as a result of improper social media usage.
