The Cutting Edge of Medical Technology Content, Community & Collaboration
In this session we will discuss the HIPAA audit and enforcement programs and how they work, and discuss the areas that caused the most issues in prior audits. We will explore what kind of issues and what kind of entities had the most problems, and show where entities need to improve their compliance the most.
We will also explore the typical risk issues that lead to breaches of health information and see how those issues may be a target for auditors in the next round of audits.
We will review the contents of the HIPAA Audit Protocol used in 2016 to show what documentation needs to be on hand should your organization be selected for an audit in the new round.We will present methods for using the contents of the HIPAA Audit Protocol to build your own compliance plan by extracting and updating the contents and relating your compliance activities directly to the questions that might be asked.
