OCR’s Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Compliance Audits Are Underway: Is Your Organization Prepared?
Wednesday, May 4th, 2016 2 PM – 3 PM US/Eastern
On March 21, 2016, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources (HHS) initiated its long-awaited HIPAA Privacy and Security and HITECH Act Breach Notification Rule compliance audits. All covered entities and business associates not currently being investigated for a complaint or breach are subject to selection for a compliance audit. Following several initial inquiries, the desk audits are expected to begin early this summer, with electronic responses to OCR due within 10 days after date on notice of audit.
This Webinar covers (a) the 2016 audit process; (b) document requirements by category of request; (c) how to use the new OCR audit protocols and how they differ from OCR’s previous audit protocols; and (d) how to achieve timely compliance.
On April 1, 2016, OCR published on its Website the long-awaited Audit Protocol-Current. The earlier audit protocols were more tailored to designing and implementing policies and procedures whereas the current audit protocols are more suited to OCR’s sample design.
HIPAA Integrity has compared and analyzed the new audit protocols versus the old and presents each in an easy-to-understand comparative Table, with each audit protocol linked to HIPAA Integrity’s policies and procedures.
