PYA Thought Leaders Embrace ‘Oceans of Opportunities’ at KHIMA Annual Meeting

The Kansas Health Information Management Association (KHIMA) annual meeting, “Embracing Oceans of Opportunities,” will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Salina, Kansas, April 25-27, 2018.   PYA Healthcare Consulting Manager Susan Thomas and Principal Barry Mathis are among this year’s presenters.

Barry will discuss the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) HIPAA audit process and timeframe in his presentation, “OCR HIPAA Audits—Do’s and Don’ts.” Session attendees will receive an OCR reference resource and a self-assessments skills tool to determine response readiness to an OCR HIPAA audit.

Susan will present “In the Patient’s Best Interest: New HIPAA Guidance and the Opioid Crisis,” which will:

  • Examine the new HIPAA guidance.
  • Discuss how the guidance relates to mental health conditions and the opioid crisis.
  • Outline how to provide treatment to incapacitated patients, while protecting their privacy.
