New HIPAA audits launched in 2016—targeting policies and procedures

April 18, 2016:

New HIPAA scrutiny is coming from the feds. The Office for Civil Rights has launched a new phase of HIPAA audits that focus on the policies and procedures that covered entities must have in place for their HIPAA compliance program. Frequent news accounts about breaches exposing patients’ protected health information and EHR hackers demanding ransom from hospitals have raised government and provider concern about HIPAA privacy and security.

What’s missing from many HIPAA compliance plans are the full range of policies and procedures, especially risk assessments and breach reaction plans. Fortunately, more than 200 customizable HIPAA policies and procedures addressing these key areas are available in the HIPAA Tool Kit and HIPAA Customizable Compliance Plan. For more information on these best-selling HIPAA products, use these links to our online catalog:
