    About the Webinar:
    Join Blake Schwank, CEO of Colorado Computer Support for an information session for all companies, business associates and covered entities. This session is not only for medical practices, but for ANY company that may touch patient data (business associates). This includes CPA’s, document shredders, IT providers, lawyers, recyclers…etc.

    If you work around healthcare and do not know if you are a business associate or covered entity…or who these entities are – you need to be in this class!
    We will cover not only how to protect your network from cyber threats, but how to protect yourself from any vendors who may be at risk. Do you have the right email solution in place? Is your data encrypted? Are your faxes secure? Do you have the right network equipment in place? Any individual touching or reading data, must attend this webinar.

    About Our Speaker:
    Blake has 26 years of experience in Health Care IT. He spent 10 years in the Army as a Medical Service Corps Office before starting Colorado Computer Support (CCS) in 2001. Over 16 years, he has built the largest IT from South of Denver with 37 employees that focuses on enterprise quality IT for your business. CCS supports more than 80 companies and schools throughout the state of Colorado

    About the Webinar:
    HHS provided guidance in 2016 regarding the patient’s right to access their PHI. This guidance provides information regarding charges and access that is drastically different from how many practices handle these types of requests. The following points are covered in my presentation:
    • How patients can request access (email, fax, CD/USB)
    • How much healthcare providers are allowed to charge for copies
    • What to do when a patient wants their PHI sent to a third-party
    • How to deal with attorneys who want access without an authorization
    • What will happen if a patient complains about access
