The First Rule of How to Survive a HIPAA Audit: Be Prepared
2015 is bringing along with it the start of the HHS Office for Civil Rights random audit program to assess compliance with the HIPAA privacy, security and breach notification rules. It is anticipated that 300-400 business associates will be the subject of a desk audit and an undisclosed number of lucky business associates and covered entities will be chosen for intensive, on-site audits. Remember, if your business provides services to a healthcare entity covered by HIPAA, you are likely a business associate.
So, here's the question: are you audit-ready?
In a free webinar, Mintz Levin’s Dianne Bourque will walk you through how to prepare now in the event that you are one of the chosen.
