Product Description

You need to be in full HIPAA compliance and prepared for an audit at any time, or risk significant fine.

In the past, audits had been performed only at entities that had had a complaint filed against them. The new rule calls for audits whether or not there is a complaint. 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.

If your organization is not ready, the HIPAA rules have more bite in the form of significantly higher fines… including mandatory minimum fines of $10,000 for willful neglect of compliance.

Join Jim Sheldon-Dean as he discusses the new audit and enforcement regulations and how they apply to covered entities and business associates. Jim will walk you through what information and documentation needs to be prepared and be ready for an audit and the Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification regulations.

PLUS: Jim has sample HHS information request forms to share with you along with the results of prior HHS audits and their penalties.

Attaining Compliance is Doable :

  • The rules that you need to comply with and the policies you can adopt to help you come into compliance
  • Fines and penalties can add up fast for violations of the HIPAA regulations - here's a look at the break down
  • Don't let the past fool you. The HHS will be auditing HIPAA covered entities and business associates even if there have been no complaints or problems reported
  • What you need to know before you the HHS OCR audits - and what you'll need at the ready when they do
  • How the HIPAA rules have changed and how you need to change to keep up with them.
  • Stay compliant more easily with a solid compliance process
