Does your dog hear what you type? Is your home office set up to protect patient data? Is your computer operating system up-to-date? The answers should be no, yes, and yes. If they're not, this is the presentation for you (and your dog knows too much). We’ll guide you through the process of setting up your home office to be HIPAA-compliant. The Omnibus Rule was a real game changer, so Linda will explain your responsibilities as a transcriptionist, while Andrew will explain the steps needed to secure your office, with special emphasis on your computer. Together, this dynamic duo will prepare you to go home and secure your work environment. Bring your computer, tablet, and smart phone questions; if we don't know the answer, we will make sure we get it for you. Oh yeah, make sure you lock your computer before you leave home!

  2. Learn about PHI protection and securing your home office.
