HIPAA regulations require that you report every single HIPAA breach that occurs, regardless of its size. The problem is that it’s not always easy to identify whether something is actually a breach and should be reported.
Overreporting a HIPAA breach is no joke. If you identify an incident as a breach when it really isn’t and report it, you open the door to HIPAA auditors, negative publicity, and massive penalties. Once auditors start poking around your practice, there is no telling what they will find. So, while you are trying to do the right thing, you are actually making things much worse.
So, before you decide to identify and report a HIPAA breach, you MUST know whether it’s actually a breach at all, which is easier said than done – unless you have some help. This is where HIPAA expert, Gina L. Campanella, Esq., FACHE, can help. During this online training, Gina will breakdown the key indicators you must know to determine if a reportable HIPAA breach has occurred, and help you avoid the consequences of both over and under reporting.
