to Present at e-MDs User Conference 2010
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - June 3, 2010 - e-MDs, a leading provider of electronic health records (EHR) and practice management (PM) solutions, has selected Janine Akers of DataFile Technologies to present at their 6th annual User Conference and Symposium (UCS10) to be held on July 22-24 at the AT&T Center in Austin, Texas.
In a presentation entitled "The Stakes Are Getting Higher for HIPAA Compliance,' Akers
will speak on the changes introduced by the HITECH Act and how practices are positively affected by the ability to transfer the liability and reporting obligations in the HIPAA Privacy and Security Provisions to a Business Associate.
"It's amazing how many practices are still learning about these HITECH Act changes - and how much they stand to benefit from making a few simple changes in their operations," said Akers
"We're honored to be selected by e-MDs
as a presenter and impressed that e-MDs
continually strives to educate their audience on ways to optimize their practices for the ultimate benefit of their patients."
will be presenting on the HITECH Act changes to HIPAA Subtitle D-13400's
Section which expands the definition of a Business Associate and now applies the security and privacy provisions directly to the Business Associate rather than the Covered Entity (the practice), including civil and criminal penalties.
Before the HITECH changes, practices had carried the burden of tracking and reporting any and all HIPAA breaches, and Akers
explains how practices can transfer the liability of risk outside their operation to a Business Associate.
explains the provisions in detail including what constitutes secure protected health information (PHI), the definition of a breach, the notification requirements, and the exclusions that apply to remove the need for notification.
also covers what practices should consider in terms of process changes, documentation, and available services to take full advantage of the changes that the HITECH Act introduces.
