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.
