Thursday, May 25, 2017   |   10:00 AM PDT | 01:00 PM EDT

Overview: 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 nxt 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.

In this session we will discuss the HIPAA audit and enforcement regulations and processes, and how they apply to HIPAA covered entities and business associates.We will explain the enforcement regulations and the new, increased fines and new penalty levels, including new penalties for willful neglect of compliance that begin at $10,000.


The results of prior HHS audits and enforcement actions (and their penalties) will be discussed, including recent actions involving multi-million dollar fines and settlements.A plan for attaining compliance will be presented. The steps to follow to prepare for an audit and respond to an audit request will be outlined.

Why Should you attend: HIPAA Compliance requires that you be prepared to handle Protected Health Information properly and follow the requirements in the HIPAA Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Rules. If there is a problem that comes to the surface, an enforcement action can result, including financial settlements that can reach into the millions of dollars, and Corrective Action Plans that can take years to complete and can cost many times the expense of the monetary settlements.

Learn how to make the HIPAA Audit Protocol useful to you as a way to organize and track your compliance work, and collect your documentation references.
Find out what you'll need to have documented to survive an audit or compliance review and avoid fines.
