DataMotion to Present Webinar on Demonstrating HIPAA Compliance

Industry Experts to Provide Best Practices to Ease the Anxiety of Proving an Organization Is Compliant

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – October 26, 2015 DataMotion™, an experienced email encryption and health information service provider (HISP), today announced the company will present an interactive webinar entitled “Take the Anxiety out of Demonstrating HIPAA Compliance.” This free webinar will be co-presented by renowned industry experts, Chris Apgar, CEO of Apgar & Associates, and Andy Nieto, health IT strategist at DataMotion, on Tuesday, November 3, 2015, at 2:00 p.m. ET.

For more than fifteen years, DataMotion has provided secure messaging solutions – including email encryption and Direct Secure Messaging – enabling healthcare providers and their business associates to ensure their data-in-transit is fully secure, despite ever-changing rules. DataMotion customers have to meet and show adherence to strict regulatory compliance standards, such as HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) and the HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health) Act and state law.

“Achieving HIPAA compliance and then turning around and demonstrating those regulations are met can be a daunting task for any organization, but it does not have to be. Hospitals and care providers are under immense pressure to prove that they have devised a comprehensive plan and have the resources to execute upon it,” said Apgar, a security and privacy expert. “In this session, we will show that it’s not nearly as hard as perceived to exhibit compliance for both covered entities and business associates.”

This webinar will provide “how to” best practices in successfully demonstrating compliance and will include topics like developing a plan, vetting potential vendors, auditing existing ones, BAA checklists, and documenting and reporting.

“Today’s Health IT landscape is constantly evolving and understanding the rules is critical,” said Nieto. “However, just understanding them is not enough. An organization must also successfully act on those rules and then prove they have done so while also understanding the spirit and objectives behind them.”
