At the HCCA booth, experts from each organization, including CynergisTek CEO, Mac McMillan, and DWT Partner, Adam Greene, will be on hand discussing the new audit readiness portfolio, which was architected specifically to evaluate and improve an organization’s compliance with HIPAA/HITECH based on OCR’s HIPAA Audit Program.

In addition, McMillan and Greene will host “Ask the Expert” informal breakfast briefings in the the exhibit hall on the mornings of April 30th and May 1st.

“The experience CynergisTek gained working with one of the hospitals selected for OCR’s HIPAA Audit Pilot Program provided us an opportunity to glimpse into the upcoming phase of compliance and enforcement that will soon become a reality for all healthcare organizations,” said McMillan. “In developing the solution series with DWT, we wanted to address new complexities that are being added to the already-daunting challenges facing compliance professionals today. In unveiling the HIPAA Audit Readiness Portfolio and engaging in discussions with our colleagues at the HCCA Compliance Institute, we hope to make strides in ensuring all healthcare organizations are equipped to handle OCR’s impending enforcement.”
