Read Frequently Asked Questions

Knowing what questions are likely to be asked and what documentation is necessary to show compliance are key to preparations for HIPAA compliance inquiries, and this session will explore a number of sets of questions and the issues they revealed, leading to enforcement action.

Why Should You Attend:

In this webinar 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 and enforcement actions. 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 become a target for auditors in the next round.

Knowing what questions are likely to be asked and have been asked at prior HIPAA compliance audits can make preparing for and surviving a HIPAA audit much easier. USDHHS has published the updated protocol being used for the HIPAA audits, so it is possible to know how to prepare for an audit. Nearly any health care covered entity may be subject to an audit or enforcement investigation; all entities need to know what kinds of questions they’ll be asked, what information they'll need to provide and how to prevent issues that could lead to violations and fines. We will examine the updated HIPAA Audit Protocol as well as other questionnaires that have been used in the past and may be used to help prepare an organization for a future review.

This webinar will discuss what information and documentation must be prepared in advance so that you can be ready for an audit or enforcement review at any time, including sample information request forms and questions asked at prior audits. The session will also cover how to know if you may become the subject of an audit or enforcement action, and what you can do to help limit your exposure. We will discuss how most enforcement actions come about and what can be done to prevent incidents that lead to enforcement activity.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • What the audit process is, what HHS OCR is likely to ask you if you are selected for an audit or compliance review, and what you’ll have to have prepared already when they do
  • How to make the HIPAA Audit Protocol useful as a way to organize and track your compliance work, and collect your documentation references
  • What you’ll need to have documented to survive an audit or compliance review and avoid fines
  • How to use an information security management process to evaluate risks and make decisions about how best to protect PHI and meet patient needs and desires
  • Policies and procedures you should have in place
  • The training and education that must take place and be documented to ensure your staff uses health information properly and does not risk exposure of PHI

Topic Background:

HIPAA enforcement and audits are now a significant reality, and settlements for violations are being announced more and more frequently. Now, with the increases in breach reporting and the new random audit program under way, enforcement of HIPAA is something that every HIPAA entity and business associate needs to be aware of and prepared for, by taking the proper steps in advance to have your compliance in order and the documentation to prove it.
