HIPAA-HITECH Blue Ribbon Panel Addresses Growing Complexity of Privacy and Security Enforcement

Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) May 02, 2014

Industry leaders discussed how to respond to the growing complexity of preparing for privacy and security enforcement actions in the wake of a new crop of federal and state enforcers, during the most recent monthly HIPAA-HITECH Blue Ribbon Panel, hosted by Clearwater Compliance.

A wide range of entities, including the Federal Trade Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commission, have joined the Office for Civil Rights to police the safeguarding of protected health information (PHI). According to the panel, its a scary new world for healthcare organizations.

Its concerning, said Blue Ribbon Panelist Gregory J. Ehardt, HIPAA/Assistant Compliance Officer for Idaho State University. HIPAA is a journey, not a destination, and when you add in all these enforcement layers, lots of organizations are fearful, and rightfully so.

Even as these new enforcers add pressure for better privacy and security practices, the OCR has never been more aggressive in levying significant financial penalties on organizations not meeting baseline expectations for PHI protection.

OCR is losing patience quickly with organizations who arent prepared, said Adam Greene, Partner with Davis Wright Tremaine LLP. Not having a risk analysis in place, not encrypting laptops, failing to have a culture of compliancethere was a day when a corrective action plan would be enough to satisfy OCR in these areas, but those days are behind us.

The Blue Ribbon Panel offered attendees helpful tips to prepare a healthcare organization to meet the scrutiny of a federal or state investigation. Among the best practices cited were:

Van Uden Center Now Offers Hydrocolontherapy

Corona, NY (PRWEB) April 16, 2014

Van Uden Center is proud to announce that they are now offering hydrocolontherapy at their facility. This treatment uses water to clean and detoxify the colon, removing toxins, improving digestion and relieving the entire body.

Hydrocolontherapy is a perfect complement to any program of weight loss, and patients can lose up to seven pounds in the first session. The treatment has many other benefits, including improving vascular and lymphatic circulation, stabilizing bowel functions, removing gas and improving digestive functions.

Hydrocolontherapy is also very useful in the removal of toxins such as anesthetics, antibiotics, drugs, alcohol and cigarettes and can be a great tool in rehabilitation programs. The treatment is also ideal before any cosmetic procedures, including both facial and body treatments.

Over time, toxins can adhere to the inner wall of the colon and cause auto-intoxication. Symptoms of auto-intoxication can include indigestion, constipation, hemorrhoids, migraines, ulcers and more. Hydrocolontherapy eliminates the toxins that cause auto-intoxication and leads to a healthier digestive system.
