AALC is once again offering a HIPAA compliance plan to its members through the Mool Law Firm, LLC. Access includes updated policies and procedures, Authorization forms, a Notice of Privacy Practices to use with all residents, and other needed HIPAA compliance forms. A new decision tool for determining when you have a breach is also included.
In the upcoming fiscal year, we expect the Office of Civil Rights to begin HIPAA audits. Tips on complying with audit protocols will be included. If the 21st Century Cures legislation passes Congress this session, substantial HIPAA policy updates will be necessary and those will be included.
Register online for subscription renewal and to attend HIPAA Update meeting on August 11, 2015. The HIPAA Update meeting will also be recorded and available for subscribed members to listen to on the Mool Law Firm website.
