Description

Healthcare experts agree that the biggest threat to patient privacy and data security is an organization's workforce. While, healthcare entities have substantial discretion, they also have little regulatory guidance or certainty in developing effective programs to determine that prospective employees will adequately protect protected health information.

The HIPAA security rule, for example, requires healthcare organizations to develop reasonable security and training measures, but says little about hiring practices.

States, however, have been active in this area. For example, Michigan requires criminal background checks for workers in long-term care and nursing home facilities.

Protecting Patient Data at the Front Door: Vetting Prospective Employees for HIPAA and Other Data Protection Laws can help healthcare organizations develop standards for hiring workers.

Participants will be briefed on:

  • Why the importance of vetting prospective employees goes beyond HIPAA
  • Types of questions that should be included in employment applications
  • The need to include Privacy and Security Officers in employment decisions
  • The usefulness of different background checks that organizations may use in evaluating prospects;
  • How state and federal laws limit what healthcare employers can ask
  • The possible need for new Business Associate contracts provisions

And more
