Updating Compliance Programs

Question #1   HIPAA privacy and security laws, including the Red Flags Rule, Health Information Technology for economic and Clinical Health Rules, and HIPAA Breach Notification Rules, are major trends in risk management and quality improvement. What is the potential effect of these trends on the organization and management of care? Discuss the financial implication and the implication of health care workers maintaining the confidentiality of patients’ protected health information.     Question #2 What future trends do you predict in HIPAA regulations regarding the new rules  on interoperability and information blocking in the 21st Century Cures Act? Discuss how  the new interoperability, info-blocking and HIPAA rules are an opportunity to make  healthcare more data driven.   Question # 3 Imagine this scenario: Your health care organization has had several small compliance incidents over the past 2 years, and the organization is now motivated to update its compliance program. Your executive leadership team asked you to review 2 health care compliance programs from similar health care organizations to determine how they constructed their compliance program, and to identify which aspects your organization should adopt. Write a 250- to 300-word response to the following: • Describe the 2 health care compliance programs you selected. • Identify the types of organizations the programs are from. • Identify the external compliance program aspects that you recommend your health care organization should adopt. Integrate corporate social responsibility in your response.  • Include your own experience as well as two citations that align with or contradict your comments as sourced from peer-reviewed academic journals, industry publications, books, and/or other sources. Cite your sources using APA 7 formatting. If you found contradicting information to what your experience tells you, explain why you agree or disagree with the research.
