BROOKLYN, N.Y., May 10, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Since the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) last year with its HITECH overlay on HIPAA, medical practices may never be the same.
Many doctors and support staff of smaller medical practices do not know how these laws affect them or how to achieve compliance.
"Even for a compliance professional, understanding and keeping up to date regarding the breach notification requirements can be a real challenge," says Paul Salazar, Esq., GS3 Counsel.
"Many prospective GS3 clients give me a deer-caught-in-the-headlights look when I discuss HITECH mandates," says Jack Adler, GS3's HIPPA-HITECH Compliance Director. "Doctors and their staff would greatly benefit if they had a nuts and bolts understanding of the requirements and fines related to HITECH." To answer this need, GS3 Medical Billing LLC www.gs3medicalbilling.com is sponsoring a Complimentary Webinar to be given by Mendel Zilberberg, Esq. "As an attorney with almost 20 years of experience, I have endured more than my fair share of webinars and other educational lectures," says Zilberberg. "Frankly, I do not recall ever walking away from a webinar with a 'nuts and bolts take away' that warranted the time I spent listening. I hope the audience of this webinar will have a dramatically different experience." The one hour webinar will examine and explain the following topics: How HIPAA is significantly changed by HITECH The requirements of HITECH Best practices for medical offices Procedural and Security manuals you should have Procedures in the event of a data breach How to prepare for a HIPAA/HITECH audit In the event of an audit, what the investigator will be looking for How to find out which medical providers have data breaches Date: You can register for the Webinar and select one of the two time slots at http://www.gs3medicalbilling.com/webinar.php Thursday, May 13th @ 7 pm EDT or Tuesday, May 18th @ 12 noon EDT About GS3 Medical Billing, LLC (GS3) www.gs3medicalbilling.com GS3 Medical Billing, LLC (GS3) is a leading innovator in the field of HIPAA-HITECH compliance.
