“Protecting Your Practice in an Overregulated World; Addressing the Four Newest Regulatory Threats while Implementing an ‘A-Z’ HIPAA Compliance Program”
Physician office HIPAA audits on the way!!!! Between the target of the government to audit 100% of doctors during meaningful use phase 2 under EHR systems and the announcement that the budget for 2016 will be the same as the budget for 2015 for enforcement by OCR of HIPAA, there was also an addition of $4 million to the budget specifically earmarked for physician office audits! This is in addition to meaningful use audits! Part of the reason is that the entire history of the HIPAA law (almost 20 years) has seen 14,500 patient complaints to Health and Human Services about HIPAA, however the last year has seen 15,500 complaints-more in one year than all of the history of the law!
As well the office of the Inspector General investigated the office of civil rights and found that the office of civil rights was not living up to its legislative mandate to do proactive audits prior to incidents in physician offices relative to HIPAA, therefore they are mandating that OCR start to do additional audits on entities covered under HIPAA to meet up to their legislative mandate-therefore even more audits on the way--
If you don't have a HIPAA compliant risk analysis, ISAR, about 80-100 pages of policies, and have met over a dozen other HIPAA standards you will likely be a statistic and if you're found in willful neglect it is a minimum $50,000 fine up to 1.5 million in any given year.
It is time to assure you are ahead of the wave and ready to surf it versus being a statistic that is swamped under the weight of HIPAA!
