Overview: This course addresses the newly released OCR (Office for Civil Rights) Phase 2 Audit Program. The rules and protocols have been released and the audit process has started. All covered entities (CE) and business associates (BA), literally anyone that accesses, uses or discloses PHI (Protected Health Information) needs to be aware of this new audit program. Potentially OCR can review up to 180 different areas of the HIPAA privacy, security and breach rules.

This presentation reviews the detailed processes OCR will use for the audits along with examples of the protocols and how to be prepared for an OCR audit. It's important to be prepared because even if not selected for an OCR audit, any privacy or security complaint could trigger the same types of questions and requests for documentation during the investigation.
