HIPAA Compliance for Small Business Owners


Gain a better understanding of how HIPAA impacts small businesses.

While the focus of HIPAA is on covered entities like health care providers and health insurance companies, the health plans that are sponsored by small businesses are likewise covered entities and must follow the rules. The trick is to know what information is health plan-related and what is treated as employee information not subject to HIPAA, and it often requires, in a small business, knowing what hat you are wearing as you encounter health information. Penalties for violations of crossing the line between a small business and its health plan can be significant. This topic will review how to distinguish between HIPAA-controlled and non-HIPAA-controlled information, providing for individual rights under HIPAA, protecting sensitive health care information, the role of employee wellness programs, implementing security awareness training, undertaking an annual risk assessment, monitoring third-party service providers, using encryption, incident response, contingency planning and case studies/examples. This material was prepared at an intermediate level. Leave with practical tips and tools that you can apply to your business, and better understand how your business is affected by HIPAA.
