Course Description:

         In this 90-minute webinar on "2020 HIPAA - Emailing, Texting, and Personal Devices (myths vs realities)" we will be going into great detail regarding your practice or business information technology and how it relates to the HIPAA/HITECH Security Rule and securing PHI in transmission.

         Mr. Brian with over 20 years of experience in Health IT and Compliance Consulting will go through multiple examples and specific scenarios and also offer simple common-sense solutions.

         Areas covered will be texting, email, encryption, medical messaging, voice data, personal devices, and risk factors.

        Mr. Tuttle will uncover myths versus reality as it relates to this very enigmatic law based on over 1000 risk assessments performed as well as years of experience in dealing directly with the Office of Civil Rights HIPAA auditors.

         Mr. Brian will speak on specific experiences from over 18 years of experience in working as an outsourced compliance auditor, expert witness on multiple HIPAA cases in state law, and thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information.
