The key to HIPAA compliance:  Conducting regular HIPAA risk assessments. Small medical practices and their business associates are under intense pressure from the HHS Office of Civil Rights to demonstrate compliance with HIPAA, and fines for non-compliance are quickly climbing into the hundreds of thousands of dollars – a penalty that most small practices simply can’t recover from.

In this 30-minute webinar, our HIPAA experts break down the top five reasons small medical practices fail these HIPAA risk assessments, and what YOU can do today to fix these little-known errors. Attendees will learn:

  • The “worst practices” that cause risk assessment failures, like the use of Gmail or Hotmail for business use
  • Tips for fixing these errors before they lead to a breach
  • Ways to simplify your annual HIPAA risk assessment process
  • Answers to common questions about HIPAA compliance at small medical practices 

The webinar is immediately followed by a 15-minute Q&A with our panelists.
