April 6, 2016. On March 21, 2016, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) announced that its long-awaited compliance audit program is “currently underway” and “will review the policies and procedures adopted and employed by covered entities and their business associates to meet selected standards and implementation specifications of the Privacy, security, and Breach Notification Rules.” All covered entities and business associates not currently under investigation for a complaint or breach are subject to selection for audit this year.

 

In anticipation of this OCR action, Cornichon Healthcare Select, LLC launched Version 3.0 of its HIPAA Integrity Safeguard Compliance Tools Package on April 1, 2016, to help covered entities and business associates get on the compliance path before possible selection for an audit by documenting policies and procedures and demonstrating safeguard compliance quickly and affordably. The HIPAA Integrity Safeguard Compliance Tool Package (Version 3.0) is comprised of an easy-to-follow tabular risk analysis template; 92 written generic safeguard policies and procedures that a covered entity or business associate must have in place and that can readily be tailored to its risk analysis findings; 22 authorization and maintenance forms accompanying safeguard procedures; and the safeguard training curriculum in five lessons with test questions for administration by Privacy and Security Officials to their workforce members. Each component of the package is linked via proprietary code and written in plain language. HIPAA Integrity also includes guidance, online accessible authoritative references, and OCR audit protocols. Teresa at Physician Resource in Oregon says: “I use HIPAA Integrity compliance tools for my clients.  They are easy to download and implement.  The tabular risk analysis template links to the written policies and procedures and derived risk analysis mitigation strategies can readily be added to them. This is a terrific and valuable product, the customer service is excellent, and I am looking forward to using the new Safeguard Training Curriculum just released and included with Version 3.0.”

 

HIPAA Integrity’s initial first year membership, which includes any updates, is an affordable $499 and immediately downloadable after payment fulfillment. Purchasers have the option of renewing annually thereafter for $99, which includes any updates and version changes. Sample documentation and additional information is available at www.HIPAAIntegrity.com. While at the site, be sure to read the April 1, 2016, blog post about the costly financial penalties and OCR imposed time consuming non-financial consequences of being discovered non-compliant. Finally, for current HIPAA Integrity members, be sure to log in and regenerate your HIPAA Integrity pdf today to have access to the new features in Version 3.0, including the new Safeguard Training Curriculum.
