DUBLIN, March 25, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "6-Hour Virtual Seminar on HIPAA Audit Lessons - Learn Top Priorities to Strengthen your Compliance" webinar has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Too many healthcare organizations believe they have HIPAA compliance under control, but recent HIPAA Compliance Audits show that noncompliance is widespread across the country. This Seminar teaches the top key lessons from those Audits and how to implement steps to strengthen your HIPAA compliance and pass an Audit.
The Office for Civil Rights (OCR), the HIPAA enforcement arm of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently announced alarming results of Phase 2 Covered Entity HIPAA Compliance Audits. 87% failed the Risk Analysis Audit and 94% failed the Risk Management Audit! Follow-up investigations are underway, and penalties have not been announced yet. Business Associates also were audited and showed similar failure rates.
HIPAA enforcement, driven by Congressional and public demand is increasing dramatically. HIPAA Risk Analysis - Risk Management is OCR's highest compliance priority and is required of all Covered Entities and Business Associates. And it should be the foundation of every health care organization's HIPAA compliance program.
But the HIPAA Rules do not explain how to do Risk Analysis - Risk Management and government guidance is confused, confusing and of no practical help. Attend this session to review, step-by-step, how you can comply calmly and confidently with this fundamental HIPAA requirement.
The Audits also revealed noncompliance with other basic HIPAA requirements of the Privacy Rule concerning the Individual's Right of Access to medical records, the Notice of Privacy Practices, and Breach Notification. Common misunderstandings about these requirements and how to comply with each of them will be explained.
