Venue: Online Event
|Event Date/Time: Feb 17, 2012||End Date/Time: Feb 17, 2012|
Why Should You Attend:
The new HIPAA compliance audit program has been announced and is now under way, bringing HIPAA compliance audits to up to 150 HIPAA Covered Entities by the end of 2012. If your organization is not ready, the HIPAA rules have new, significantly higher fines, including mandatory minimum fines of $10,000 for willful neglect of compliance.
In this session we will discuss the HIPAA audit and enforcement processes and how they apply to covered entities and business associates. We will explain the enforcement regulations and their recent changes. We will discuss what information and documentation needs to be prepared in advance so that you can be ready for an audit without notice. Sample information request forms and questions asked at prior audits will be presented. The session will also cover how to know if you may become the subject of an audit or enforcement action, and what you can do to help limit your exposure. We will discuss how most enforcement actions come about and what can be done to prevent incidents that lead to enforcement.
