Stone Carlie & Company, L.L.C., certified public accountants, business consultants and wealth advisors, is pleased to bring its partner, Clearwater Compliance, and a faculty of leading national HIPAA experts, to St. Louis for a one day HIPAA Compliance BootCamp™ on Wednesday, December 11 at the Ritz Carlton. The BootCamp will provide an intensive educational experience focused on HIPAA-HITECH regulations.
This nationally renowned curriculum is geared toward professionals who are responsible for ensuring their healthcare organizations become and remain compliant with the HIPAA Privacy, Security and HITECH Breach Notification regulations. The BootCamp uses a highly interactive classroom setting to tackle HIPAA-HITECH fundamentals, while offering practical tools and support for organizations to apply their learning. It is designed to help organizations understand the regulations, recognize high priority gaps and formulate a step-by-step implementation strategy and key progress metrics for enhancing compliance efforts.
“Now that the deadline for compliance with the Omnibus Final Rule has passed, the stakes have officially been raised. Organizations who aren’t prepared are placing themselves at significant risk,” said Bob Chaput, founder and CEO of Clearwater Compliance. “Our In-Person BootCamp format is a proven means for leaders responsible for HIPAA-HITECH compliance to gain the knowledge and resources needed to understand the requirements and to assess their priorities. It’s never been more critical for Covered Entities and Business Associates to know where they stand and to establish a plan that documents good faith efforts to become and remain compliant under the law.”
“We partnered with Clearwater Compliance to bring our clients a suite of HIPAA Compliance services that help Covered Entities and Business Associates strengthen and manage their compliance programs and this BootCamp is an extension of that,” said Josh Ayers, Director of Stone Carlie’s Systems Security & Process Assurance (SSPA) Group. “Our SSPA Group has long served Business Associates and those in the healthcare industry and HIPAA has always been a consideration and a compliance benchmark. However, it was not until the Final Omnibus Rule that those Business Associates have been statutorily obligated to comply with HIPAA and face enforcement action from Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Office of Civil Rights (OCR). We can now help our clients mitigate the threat of that enforcement and compliance action with our new suite of services.”
Specifically, HIPAA BootCamp attendees will receive:
– Interaction with nationally recognized, fully credentialed HIPAA-HITECH experts in a small classroom setting.
– Comprehensive instruction on HIPAA Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rule Requirements, as amended by the Omnibus Final Rule.
– A curriculum designed to equip teams with practical, actionable activities to enable them to recognize high priority gaps and develop prioritized remediation plans.
– Complimentary toolkit and resources to develop or strengthen participating organizations’ compliance programs.
