This webinar will concentrate on topics that HHS has announced will be the focus of the first round of "desk audits". They reflect significant areas of non-compliance revealed in the 2012 pilot audits and HHS HIPAA violation investigations concluded by Resolution Agreements and Corrective Action Plans. They include:
- HIPAA Risk Analysis
- Risk Management based on Risk Analysis
- Breach Notification
- Notice of Privacy Practices (for Covered Entities)
- Minimum Necessary Standard
- Access of Individuals to their PHI
- Workforce Training
This webinar is vital because, in focusing on preparation for a HIPAA Compliance Audit, Covered Entities and Business Associates may review, prioritize and structure their HIPAA Compliance programs. If you have HIPAA Compliance documentation ready to submit on two weeks’ notice to HHS you are implementing an effective HIPAA Compliance workforce training program.
In addition, every Covered Entity or Business Associate may face an HHS HIPAA Compliance investigation at any time due to a complaint or a Breach. If you are "audit ready" you will be ready for an investigation - and better able to avoid complaints and prevent health and human services breaches.
