Energy Trading Compliance 2013

October 8th, 2013

Energy Trading Compliance 2013
Event on 2013-11-21 00:00:00

Led by CFTC and FERC, industry leader companies, and outside attorneys who are tuned into these recent changes, this is the only energy trading compliance conference that looks ahead and offers measurable strategies and tactics to ensure that compliance programs fit seamlessly into the new regulatory landscape. As the Dodd Frank regulations have materialized, the FERC and the CFTC continue to sort out their jurisdictional reach, and the industry finds itself faced with CFTC’s new rules and final product definitions, companies have been left struggling with questions on how to comply with regulations in a post-Dodd-Frank world.  Increased enforcement efforts coupled with congressionally-sanctioned penalties makes regulatory compliance more important than ever.

HIPAA Business Associates – New Rules Mean New Obligations with Compliance

June 24th, 2013

HIPAA Business Associates – New Rules Mean New Obligations with Compliance
Event on 2013-07-18 10:00:00
Overview: This session will start with the definition of a HIPAA Business Associate including what is and is not a Business Associate and what other kinds of relationships can exist besides a HIPAA Business Associate relationship. The role of business associates will be explored and how they are treated under HIPAA will be explained. 

The new regulations will be reviewed and their effects on usual practices for Business Associates and their relationships with covered entities will be discussed. We will explain what a Business Associate needs to do differently under the new regulations, provide a policy framework for information security, show what policies need to be changed and how, and describe the required and recommended elements of a Business Associate Agreement. 

Specific language must be incorporated in all HIPAA BA agreements, and agreements must be examined to ensure that liability, indemnification, and notification for incidents and breaches are properly covered. Any agreement signed since January 25, 2013 will need to meet the new standards by September 23, 2013; valid agreements and “evergreen” auto-renewing contracts already in place and signed under the old rules prior to January 25, 2013 have until September 23, 2014 to be updated. 

This Webinar will help health information professionals understand what they have to do, and when, and what to keep in mind as they move forward, in order to be prepared for compliance with the new regulations. It will provide a comprehensive look at the changes in the law and prepare attendees for the process of incorporating the changes into how they do business in their facilities. 

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Business Associates have new requirements to comply with HIPAA privacy protections and security safeguards and are subject to enforcement and penalties directly by HHS.
  • Sub-contractors of Business Associates are also considered to be Business Associates under the new rules.
  • Patient Safety Organizations, Health Information Exchanges, Regional Health Information Exchanges, and e-Prescribing gateways are now considered to be Business Associates
  • The new regulations change the way individuals have access to their records, how much they can find out about who has accessed their records, and allow new rights to restrict certain disclosures, and Business Associates who supply EHR services will need to provide those capabilities.
  • Business Associate Agreements are now more important than ever, because breaches by Business Associates are common and carry tremendous expenses for the affected covered entities.
  • New limitations on marketing and fund-raising may change how entities can reach out to individuals, and may change business associate relationships.
  • New audit and penalty requirements increase the need to make sure covered entities and Business Associates are in compliance before HHS OCR knocks on the door.
  • The new penalty structure and the new audit program mean that you are more likely to be audited for HIPAA compliance, and you may be facing significantly higher penalties for non-compliance than ever before.

Who Will Benefit:

  • Compliance director
  • CEO
  • CFO
  • Privacy Officer
  • Security Officer
  • Information Systems Manager
  • HIPAA Officer
  • Chief Information Officer
  • Health Information Manager
  • Healthcare Counsel/lawyer
  • Office Manager
  • Contracts Manager
