Why Should you Attend
With everything that we face in the healthcare arena today, we sometimes neglect HIPAA and forget to take proper steps to insure that patient information is kept confidential. Any one that has access to patient information can be held accountable for some erroneous disclosures. Think about all the team members in your practice/facility that are liable and responsible for protecting key areas of patient data.
It is worth the investment to make sure that we are doing our due diligence to protect sensitive information. If you are responsible for any information, this session is for you.

Our goal will be to make this extremely complex enigma known as "HIPAA" very easy to understand with a painless step by step approach, otherwise a very complex topic.
