Presented by the

About The Conference: 
Do you know if you are HIPAA compliant? Are you up-to-date on HOW to be HIPAA compliant (as of 9/23/2013)? If the answer to either of these questions is no, consider attending this conference.

Most attorneys agree that HIPAA rules have become the standard governing all privacy and security issues, whether you are a covered entity, i.e., have sent patient material electronically, or not.

Many LICSWs, LMFTs, LMHCs, ARNPs, psychologists, and psychiatrists think that HIPAA is not an issue that affects their practices.  You should know that the enforcement of the HIPAA rule has grown exponentially in the past year, with private practitioners as the single largest group of clinicians being sanctioned by the Office of Civil Rights.
