Join David Barton, Principal UHY Advisors, as he discusses the new OCR Audit Protocols and explains appropriate application for risk assessment against the standards and safeguards of the the HIPAA Security Act.
These new OCR audit guidelines are based off of the pilot HIPAA audit program launched late last year by the government in partnership with auditing firm KPMG. The pilot program involved 150 audits of covered entities (healthcare organizations) in order to assess privacy and security policies against HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules and Breach Notification standards.
Audits this year will include business associates – the vendors and partners of covered entities, including HIPAA hosting providers such as Online Tech. Sign up for our free webinar to learn about the new standards and submit your questions in advance.
