Overview of the webinar

A legal and compliance program is a set of policies, procedures, and systems that a healthcare organization puts in place to ensure compliance with all relevant laws, regulations, and industry standards. This can include compliance with laws and regulations related to healthcare delivery, such as HIPAA and the Affordable Care Act, as well as compliance with laws and regulations related to business operations, such as labor laws and data privacy laws.

The program helps healthcare organizations in several ways:

  • It helps to identify and mitigate legal and compliance risks, which can include financial penalties, legal action, and damage to the organization's reputation.
  • It helps to ensure that the organization is providing high-quality care that meets all relevant standards.
  • It helps to maintain accreditation from relevant regulatory bodies.
  • It helps to foster a culture of compliance within the organization, which can improve employee morale and promote ethical behavior.
  • It helps to ensure that the organization is able to demonstrate compliance with legal and regulatory requirements if audited or investigated.

The legal and compliance program is typically overseen by a compliance officer or legal counsel, and may involve the creation of policies and procedures, employee training, regular internal audits, and incident reporting systems

Why should you attend?

It is important for employees and organizations to know and understand data privacy because they play a critical role in protecting personal information and ensuring compliance with laws and regulations. Employees who handle personal information, such as customer service representatives, IT staff, and human resources personnel, need to know how to properly collect, use, and store personal information to ensure that it is protected. They also need to know how to respond to privacy-related inquiries and incidents, such as data breaches.

For organizations, understanding data privacy is important for developing and implementing effective policies, procedures, and controls to protect personal information. This includes identifying and assessing privacy risks, developing and implementing appropriate technical and organizational measures to mitigate those risks, and regularly monitoring and testing the effectiveness of those measures. By understanding and addressing data privacy risks, organizations can help protect personal information and avoid legal liability, financial loss and damage to the reputation.

Additionally, employees and organizations should be aware of the legal and regulatory requirements, such as GDPR, HIPAA, and CCPA that applies to the handling of personal information. This includes understanding the rights of individuals regarding their personal information and the organization's responsibilities for protecting it.
