The Hospice of North Idaho was fined $50,000 for not protecting 441 records. Excel Plus Home Health Inc. in TX reported theft of a desktop with 524 patient’s information. In March 2016, North Memorial Health Care of Minnesota paid $1.5 million to OCR after a HIPAA audit revealed that the organization did not conduct a proper risk assessment. Fines like this could cripple a home care or hospice agency.


The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) issues fines to HIPAA- covered entities that fail to implement the necessary safeguards to secure protected health information. HIPAA compliance is more than just annual training. This webinar will cover three areas where agencies should focus attention now!

ASSESSMENT - Don’t delay, conduct a risk assessment to determine areas that create the greatest risk for your agency and begin to mitigate those risks before disaster strikes and the agency is faced with loss of information, penalties and a damaged reputation. The first area covered in this webinar is conducting a HIPAA Risk Assessment.

BREACH - In 2017 alone, there have been 4,482,025 breaches reported. In 2016, there were 43 instances where employee error put more than 1.2 million patient records at risk. Even small breaches must be self-reported to the OCR by the March 1 deadline.

CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION Implementation of the new emergency preparedness rules involves developing a method for sharing of information with other healthcare providers in an emergency as part of your communication plan. Do you know what is permissible under HIPAA?
