With HIPAA audits slated to resume and Office for Civil Rights (OCR) monetary settlements steadily increasing, the risk of ending up on OCR’s “wall of shame” is greater than ever. OCR and two covered entities recently entered into the largest HIPAA settlement to date—a combined $4.8 million penalty for alleged violations during a joint arrangement. The first step to ensuring HIPAA compliance is developing an effective risk analysis and management process that identifies threats, corrects vulnerabilities, and protects your patients.

The Guide to HIPAA Auditing: Practical Tools for Privacy and Security Compliance, Third Edition, will help you build a successful HIPAA compliance auditing and monitoring program at your organization. It will help you identify potential risks, improve your compliance program, and document your activities—putting you in good standing for any government audit or litigation that requires you to substantiate your efforts.
