Onsite “Brown Bag Lunch” HIPAA Privacy and Security Training

We call it a “Brown Bag Lunch” offering because it is designed to be conducted in a collaborative manner over an extended lunch period, but the courses can be tailored to meet your company’s needs.  If you have multiple sites, we can provide this training via webinars to allow a multi-location interactive learning opportunity.

HIPAA Policies and Procedures

The HIPAA Privacy and Security regulations require that covered entities have written policies and procedures and designate a privacy and security officer to be responsible for HIPAA compliance.  It is imperative that the written documents be an accurate reflection of your organization’s policies and that they are properly carried out by your personnel.  It is also important that existing policies and procedures be reviewed from time to time to ensure compliance with the ever changing laws. 

Clark Hill’s experienced attorneys can work with your organization to develop customized HIPAA policies and procedures that both meet the HIPAA regulatory requirements as well as accurately reflect your existing practices.  If you already have written policies and procedures in place, Clark Hill’s attorneys can review your existing documentation and advise on whether updates are needed.
