The A to Zs of Microbial Control Monitoring and validation of Pharmaceutical Water Systems
5/1/2014 9:00 AM - 5/2/2014 6:00 PM
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel San Diego Downtown San Diego, California United States
Event Listing

This course is designed to provide a microbiology-focused education about all aspects of water systems and how biofilm manages to thrive there. Prior microbiological education or training, though a plus, is not a requirement because engineers and other non-biologists also need this training if they are involved with any aspect of water systems. The instructor will provide the necessary background needed to understand this very important subject matter. This understanding is essential to the proper design, validation, operation, monitoring, maintenance, troubleshooting, and excursion investigations of a high purity water system. Without this understanding, water system control consists of a set of rules that often don't work and can cause very costly system downtime or even product recalls, and leaves the user without a clue as to what went wrong or how to effectively fix it so it doesn't recur.

HIPAA Issues in Mental and Behavioral Health Webinar By MentorHealth
5/1/2014 10:00 AM - 11:31 AM
online training Fremont, California United States
Event Listing

Overview: Without the proper legal awareness needed to stay in compliance, you may face grave legal and financial consequences. This webinar will help alleviate confusion by providing an overview of HIPAA and the Security and Privacy Rules and the changes that the HITECH Act caused, especially regarding civil and criminal penalties for violating HIPAA. Learn how and when HIPAA preempts (does away with) state law and the exceptions to preemption, and what other laws preempt HIPAA, such as 42 Code of Federal Regulations Part II's added protection for substance abuse treatment information.

Gain insight on the Security Rule issues for mental and behavioral health practitioners in terms of the five categories of security requirements: general provisions, administrative safeguards, physical safeguards, technical safeguards, and documentation requirements. Understand the privacy rights of clients under HIPAA, specifically the individual's right of access to protected health information ("PHI"), the individual's right to an accounting of uses and disclosures of PHI, the individual's right to notice of information practices, the individual's right to request restriction of uses and disclosures of PHI, and the individual's right to request correction/amendment of PHI.

The information presented is valuable legal and practical information on how to comply with the laws and regulations that haunt your daily duties. Social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, addiction professionals, case managers, health care administrators, privacy officers, security officers, CFO's and risk managers will acquire useful knowledge and solutions to your compliance nightmares and fears of ethics violations, litigation, depositions, and court room testimony. This program will boost your confidence in all of these areas and help you continue to provide "top shelf" care, treatment and advice to your clients. Focus your energies where they count the most and gain the expertise you need to meet the requirements of HIPAA, the HITECH Act, and Omnibus Rule change. Become and remain confident that your Mental and Behavioral health care practice is on the right track.

Why should you attend: The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPAA") and its implementing Department of Health and Human Services ("DHHS") regulations, primarily the Security Rule and the Privacy Rule, however, greatly complicate many important issues, such as whether a clinician could release a second opinion by another clinician to the client under the client's HIPAA right of access or whether HIPAA's narrow exception to disclosure to the client if the disclosure would be reasonably likely to result in death or serious injury would prohibit the disclosure if it would impair the therapeutic relationship.

Much of this type of confusion comes from HIPAA's preemption standard. HIPAA preempts (does away with) other state or federal law that is inconsistent with HIPAA unless, among other grounds, the state or federal law provides more privacy protection. One of the problems, for example, is figuring out whether a state law saying that a psychologist may not release a third-party document to the patient provides more or less privacy protection.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Group therapy

Disclosure to law enforcement and others when the client presents a danger to him or herself or others including interaction with the Tarasoff duty to warn

Key Factors to Write HIPAA Compliance Policies
5/6/2014 10:00 AM - 11:31 AM
online event Fremont, California United States
Event Listing

Overview: The webinar will explain the process for covered entities and business associates to use to draft, adopt, and implement HIPAA compliance policies. The webinar will begin with a discussion of how to decide, using a gap analysis and a risk analysis, what policies the organization needs, including required, addressable, and other policies. Then, the webinar will cover writing a policy. Writing a policy is easier than one may think. It is a three-step process: researching, drafting, and revising.

This webinar will teach you to ask questions, solicit help, collect samples, keep the principles of substance, organization, coherence, style, and correctness in mind while you are drafting, send your draft out for review, incorporate comments, implement the policy, and repeat as necessary. The prospect of developing and writing perhaps as many as 70 policies to attain HIPAA compliance may still seem daunting, but this webinar will teach you how to make a checklist, take it step by step, and enlist the help of others when you need it.

Why should you attend: The majority of the DHHS civil money penalties and settlements in lieu thereof involve, sometimes with other violations, failure to perform a written risk analysis, failure to develop required policies, and failure to conduct adequate HIPAA training. These penalties usually are in the seven-figure range.

Failure to conduct a written risk analysis, adopt required policies, or conduct required training qualifies as "willful neglect," which carries the highest civil money penalty ("CMP") and which penalty cannot be waived by DHHS as can violations due to a reasonable cause. DHHS entered into a settlement with Massachusetts General Hospital for $1 million for a breach involving leaving paper PHI records on a subway. The sanction was because Massachusetts General had not trained its workforce on proper security for PHI taken offsite and did not have a work-at-home policy. Significantly, HIPAA does not even mention working at home, much less specifically require such a policy.
