Last week, our own Brian Bewley chaired the HCCA Midwest Regional Conference in Overland Park, Kansas.  The conference addressed current compliance issues such as the compliance officer’s evolving role, RAC audits and appeals, and HIPAA.  The conference had a great turnout – in fact, the most attendees in the conference’s history.

Husch Blackwell’s Julianne Story and Deb Hiser presented on “HIPAA in the Workplace,” where they discussed employee conduct posing risks including social media, snooping, lost laptops and communicating with patients.  Their presentation also addressed the HITECH Act, best practices and penalties.
