MARCH 15, 2016
Total HIPAA (www.TotalHIPAA.com) and NueMD announce HIPAA Webinars for healthcare providers beginning in March through May 2016. The success of the 2015 webinars and NueMD’s release of their 2016 HIPAA survey results are the impetus for once again educating healthcare providers on HIPAA compliance.
In 2014, NueMD first conducted a HIPAA survey of 1050 healthcare providers. The 2016 survey results document the changes in HIPAA compliance for 799 medical practices and 58 billing companies. (http://www.nuemd.com/hipaa/survey/2016/)

“We had excellent attendance for our 5-part, 2015 webinars,” stated Kevin McCarthy, Inbound Marketing Specialist at NueMD. “Based on the results of our most recent survey, we want to help healthcare providers better understand their responsibilities for implementing HIPAA,” McCarthy commented.
