Maturity Model Adoption and Performance Improvement

May 14 | 2pm-3pm Eastern | No Cost

The use of a maturity model (or multiple models) allows an organization to have its methods and processes assessed according to management best practice, against a clear set of external benchmarks. Further, maturity models are effective tools for articulating a visual path from crawling to walking to running, across a number of domains.

Maturity models are being employed more frequently in healthcare systems. This session will introduce some of the most prevalent maturity models being considered/adopted by healthcare systems, explore their applicability to and usefulness in performance improvement and examine how maturity models can engage stakeholders and drive systemic change.

HIPAA Security Rule Modernization

May 21 | 2pm-3pm Eastern | No Cost

The HIPAA Security Rule is old news and, in the wave of recent breaches and the cybersecurity threat, Congress is looking seriously at modernizing the Rule to set a new bar for information security program performance. This, despite the fact that Covered Entities and Business Associates continue to struggle with the original Rule’s implementation.

Does version 2 of ONC’s Guide to Privacy and Security of Electronic Health Information provide us any insight as to where this new bar may be set? In this webinar we will walk through the guidance set forth in this new publication from the ONC and what we might see in any new legislation or enforcement efforts.

Capitol Hill Briefing: Cybersecurity with CHIME’s Leslie Krigstein

May 27 | 2pm-3pm Eastern | No Cost

Cyber attacks on the healthcare industry are rising at an alarming rate. Of all data breaches in the United States, healthcare entities accounted for the highest percentage of incidents, more than one-third of all data breaches in the country. One study reports that 94% of healthcare entities have experienced security or privacy breaches with their data.

Despite frequent warnings from DHHS and DHS, the healthcare industry lags behind other sectors in implementing some of the basic security precautions when it comes to protecting patient data. Of healthcare organizations surveyed in a 2012 study on cybercrime, fewer than half performed an annual security risk assessment.

With a call to action from the President and growing concerns on Capitol Hill, our Congress has taken the first steps to intervene on the growing cybersecurity threat. In recent weeks the House of Representatives has passed two important pieces of legislation, the Protecting Cyber Networks Act (HR 1560) and The National Cybersecurity Protection Advancement Act of 2015 (HR 1731).

Join us for an important public policy briefing to better understand these pieces of legislation and the key takeaways/implications for your healthcare organization.

Data Governance 101: A Primer for Healthcare Leaders

June 4 | 2pm-3pm Eastern | No Cost

Data governance provides the framework for the intersection of IT and the business working together to establish confidence and credibility in the health system’s information. Data governance establishes and integrates a set of rules – policies, guidelines, principles and standards – for managing the health system’s highly-valuable data assets that engage stakeholders from across the health system.

This session will introduce/further attendees’ understanding of data governance – what it means and why it matters. The presenter will introduce key data governance principles, the fundamentals of a data governance program, and offer practical guidance on how to begin and/or advance the conversation about data governance with fellow stakeholders. Key components of a data governance program roadmap and maturity model will be addressed as well.

OCR HIPAA Audit Program: Prepping for the Inevitable

June 25 | 2pm-3pm Eastern | No Cost

The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) “permanent” HIPAA Audit Program provides another opportunity for the OCR to examine different mechanisms for compliance with HIPAA/HITECH, identify best practices, and discover new risks and vulnerabilities.  The audits are in addition to OCR’s ability to assess HIPAA/HITECH compliance through its routine complaint and investigation process.

The OCR has communicated “what” will be audited in the areas of privacy, security and breach notification. The OCR has also communicated how organizations will be selected for audit. Finally, the OCR has also provided some insight into the approach that will be taken, short of publishing the protocol itself, as of yet.

This session will offer participants the absolute “latest and greatest” on the OCR HIPAA Audit Program and how an organization can prepare and maintain a posture of audit readiness.
