United States: You’re Invited: Tips For Surviving A HIPAA Audit
Last Updated: January 16 2015

On Wednesday January 28th, my colleague Dianne Bourque (a member in Mintz Levin's Health Law practice), will be presenting a webinar on how to survive a HIPAA audit.  As luck would have it, January 28th is also international Data Privacy Day.

With the New Year in full swing, the HHS Office of Civil Rights ("OCR") is resuming its random audit program to assess compliance with HIPAA privacy, security and breach notification rules.  While Phase I of the OCR audit program involved on-site visits, OCR will conduct Phase II audits by performing desk review of documentation.  Findings during a Phase II audit can lead to enforcement and failure to comply can lead to the imposition of civil monetary penalties.

During this webinar, Dianne will discuss lessons learned from Phase I of the audit program and how best to incorporate those lessons into Phase II preparations.  She will also discuss how to identify and eliminate compliance gaps, in case you are chosen for an audit.

Phase II audits can happen to covered entities and business associates alike.  Learn more about how you should be preparing and register for this webinar by clicking here.
