Baker Tilly and ACUA are pleased to offer our upcoming webinar: HIPAA in Higher Ed – Does your risk assessment get an A+ from OCR?

HIPAA and healthcare technology have evolved significantly over the past twenty years. Threats to ePHI security, confidentially and integrity are more prevalent than ever and second-round Office for Civil Rights (OCR) audits are underway. Higher education and research institutions, including academic medical centers and systems, are finally asking: Does my risk assessment adhere to the OCR guidelines and what might we be missing?

During this webinar we will discuss the latest HIPAA news and recent higher education OCR actions, commonly forgotten areas of the risk assessment, standard tools recommended by OCR and a practical assessment approach that can lead to efficiencies and savings.
