ATLANTA, Jan. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NueMD, in partnership with Total HIPAA Compliance and Taylor English Duma LLP, is conducting a series of webinars on HIPAA compliance for small medical practices and billing companies.
The webinars will address steps healthcare professionals can take to achieve and maintain compliance with HIPAA regulations. Office managers, practice administrators, office staff, billers/coders, and care providers are encouraged to attend.
The first webinar, "Steps to HIPAA Compliance: Forming a Plan," will take place on Thursday, February 5 at 2pm ET.
Daniel Brown, Esq. of the Atlanta, Georgia law firm Taylor English Duma LLP will discuss important steps practices and billing companies should take to achieve and maintain compliance, including:
- Choosing privacy and security officers
- Performing risk assessments
- Creating privacy and security policies and procedures
- Business Associate Agreements
- Training employees
Following the presentation, Daniel Brown and Jason Karn of Total HIPAA Compliance will be available to answer questions from the audience and provide additional clarification.

The follow-up webinars, set to take place over the coming weeks, will focus on Business Associate Agreements (BAAs), compliance with electronic devices, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), and risk assessments.
The webinar series is largely in response to a recent NueMD survey that showed small practices are far from compliant with HIPAA.
"The results of the survey called attention to some serious gaps in compliance. We believe the problem stems from a lack of easy-to-understand educational resources," said Caleb Clarke, director of sales and marketing at NueMD. "Daniel Brown and Jason Karn do an excellent job of simplifying recent changes to HIPAA and explaining how to create and execute a solid plan."
