Identifying the basics of HIPAA compliance as to the designated Compliance Officer, Privacy Officer, and Security Officer

While the basic provisions of privacy for protected health information are well known, their application in today’s healthcare world is complex – so much so the HIPAA laws require a Privacy Officer for your health care organization as a covered entity. HIPAA’s many security rules regarding protected health information first involve the person designated as a Privacy Officer. These federal requirements extend not only to covered entities but to business associates of covered entities.

What is the difference between a HIPAA Compliance Officer, a Privacy Officer, and a Security Officer? Can the health care entity combine functions and job duties? Are these three separate jobs, or are they three jobs in one? The current trend requires the covered entity to stay on top of continuing changes to HIPAA and a growing responsibility, expanded job duties, and a greater time and resource demands focused on patient confidentiality and digital security by the Privacy Officer.

This webinar by HIPAA expert Mark R. Brengelman, covers the job responsibilities of the Privacy Officer, the intended qualifications, and tips and techniques for carrying out these increasing privacy functions.

Erase the fear, uncertainty, and doubt about exactly how a healthcare entity may designate, identify, and use the Privacy Officer to ensure compliance with ongoing HIPAA privacy requirements in a complex, ever-changing healthcare world. Find out how the HIPAA Privacy Officer can succeed.

Webinar Agenda


This informative webinar begins with the most basic of questions: Does HIPAA mandate a Compliance Officer, Privacy Officer, and Security Officer? Find out the answer and examine how the privacy rules of HIPAA require covered entities and health care providers, including business associates, to identify and to designate a person whose title is Privacy Officer to lead the organization with regard to patient confidentiality. This is mandated by federal administrative regulation.

Specifically, this webinar includes a detailed look at examples of the duties and qualifications of the Privacy Officer. Further, this webinar reviews a comprehensive list of job duties applicable to the Privacy Officer.

Uncertainty exists when faced with strict laws covering required HIPAA compliance. Erase the fear, uncertainty, and doubt by reviewing how the health care organization must comply with HIPAA as to privacy via its Privacy Officer. This webinar is thus an advanced overview of some of the most important aspects of the organization’s Privacy Officer.
