HIMSS conference speaker Will Present Lessons Learned from a HIPAA Audit

Carol Amick, manager of Healthcare Services, will speaking at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society Annual Conference to be held April 24-25 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Amick will discuss HIPAA regulations and how healthcare organizations are still missing the mark when it comes to covering the basics of HIPAA compliance.

Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) is a non-profit, global adviser and thought leader assisting healthcare organizations in understanding the evolution of health through information and technology. HIMSS aids these healthcare organizations by means of education and events.

Amick’s keynote presentation objectives and takeaways from her keynote will be

  • Explore what your organization needs to do to demonstrate compliance. What do you need to do be ready for an audit? Is there any way this can benefit a compliance organization?
  • Discuss common issues noted in HIPAA Security Reviews and how to perform your assessment
  • Discuss how to address issues while adding value to the organization. Don’t just “check the box,” but use the opportunity to improve operations!
    • What to do if and when the government knocks on the door
