One thing is for sure. You don’t want to wait until you get a notice from the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) before you start preparing for an audit. OCR has distributed surveys to identify healthcare providers, hospitals and employer sponsored group health plans to create a pool for the Phase 2 HIPAA Audits the to measure compliance with the HIPAA Privacy Rule, Security Rule, and breach notification requirements.
The second phase of OCR’s audit program promises reviews of business associates to measure their compliance with the Security Rule and how they approach their obligations under the Privacy and Breach Notification Rules. As OCR conducts more targeted compliance reviews and audits, it is imperative that HIPAA covered entities and business associates have the tools to prepare.
The scope and complexity of today’s healthcare regulations make it hard to keep up with the challenges posed by an ever-changing business environment while remaining vigilant for meeting health information privacy and security requirements.
Because of this, we are presenting a free webinar, “How to Prepare for the New OCR HIPAA Audits.” In this presentation, industry expert and former OCR senior advisor David Holtzman will provide the latest updates on the audits, including what OCR will be focusing on during the audits, and he will identify tools that can help you prepare for a HIPAA audit.
Attendees will be empowered with the knowledge and tools to prepare for an OCR HIPAA performance audit, including a complementary copy of CynergisTek’s OCR Audit Toolkit.
During this session, we will:
- Discuss what you and your organization should expect if selected for an OCR audit
- Understand how to prepare your organization/department for the audit process
- Identify steps your organization can take to identify and mitigate compliance gaps
- Review the audit toolkit that you can implement at your organization
There will be two sessions offered, so you can choose which works best for your schedule: Tuesday, July 12th or Thursday, July 28th from 12:00pm – 1:00pm CDT.
