Product Description

The new rule calls for audits whether or not there has been a complaint filed. 

This means that the HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR) can show up at your door and ask to perform an audit, and your organization will need to be ready.  AND – if your organization is not ready, the HIPAA rules have new, significantly higher fines, including mandatory minimum fines of $10,000 for willful neglect of compliance.

All HIPAA Covered Entities and Business Associates need to be fully in compliance and prepared for an audit at any time, or risk the significant fines for non-compliance.

Join HIPAA expert Jim Sheldon-Dean for this 60-minute audio conference where he will discuss the new audit and enforcement regulations and how they apply to covered entities and business associates.

Jim will fill you in on what information and documentation needs to be prepared to be ready for an audit, present you with a sample HHS information request form and give you the scoop on the Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification regulations (and the recent changes to them).

Don’t Miss Out:

  • Fines and penalties for violations of the HIPAA regulations have been significantly increased and now include mandatory fines for willful negligence that begin at $10,000 minimum.
  • HIPAA Audits have been few and far between, but that's changing – the HHS will be auditing HIPAA covered entities and business associates with or without complaints.
  • Find out what HHS OCR is likely to ask you if you are selected for an audit, and what you'll have to have prepared already when they do.
  • Discover what the rules are and the policies you can adopt to help you come into compliance.
  • Learn how the HIPAA rules have changed and how you may need to change how you work to keep up with them.
  • Zoom in on how a good compliance process will help you stay compliant more easily.
  • Find out what you'll need to have documented to survive an audit and avoid fines.
