Preparing For a HIPAA Compliance Audit

Publisher: Compliance Week
April 5, 2016

Jim Bowers and Eric Fader were quoted in the article "Preparing for a HIPAA compliance audit" in Compliance Week. The article reports on steps healthcare entities can take to prepare for the much-anticipated second round of HIPAA compliance audits now underway by the Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Civil Rights. Bowers said a report by the HHS Office of Inspector General that was critical of enforcement of HIPAA's privacy rule during the first round of audits prompted OCR "to be a bit more rigid during this phase than the last phase." Fader said the use of enterprise-wide risk assessments "would uncover the types of omissions and shortcomings that audits are likely to be looking for."
