FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., July 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JDL Technologies announced today the company is hosting a special training seminar for HIPAA Compliance Officers and personnel performing that role for their medical facilities and healthcare practices.
The training is open to members of the healthcare provider community and advance registration is required due to limited seating. The seminar will take place on Wednesday, July 30, 2014, from 9am to 4pm, at the Doubletree by Hilton in Orlando, Florida.
JDL Technologies, the foremost provider of HIPAA-compliant information technology solutions in Florida, has partnered with HIPAA Compliance Associates, developer of the HIPAA Compliance Kit, to present the comprehensive HIPAA Compliance Officer training.
Attendees will learn their responsibilities and liabilities under the latest HIPAA guidance, including the 2013 Omnibus Rule and Florida Statute 501.171, and actions they should take to meet these HIPAA compliance standards. This information is especially important as the Health & Human Services Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has begun auditing smaller and mid-size practices and imposing penalties for audit failures and other compliance violations.
The registration fee includes meals as well as 6.5 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and the HIPAA Compliance Kit. The seminar will address risk management, security and data breach response, security assessments and system activity review, cybersecurity for the HIPAA compliance officer, the OCR audit protocol, and an information technology review of HIPAA requirements. The seminar meets HIPAA requirements for compliance officer training, and a completion certificate will be provided along with a certificate for 6.5 CEUs.
Seminar registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to HIPAA Compliance Officers and individuals responsible for HIPAA compliance in their medical facilities and healthcare practices. Click here for more information.
HIPAA Compliance Officer Training will also be presented in conjunction with a medical education event and expo sponsored by Medical Office Resources of Florida (MOROF) on Saturday, August 23, 2014, at Florida Career College/Anthem College in Orlando. Seating is limited for both HIPAA Compliance Officer Training seminars.
