Join us at 1 p.m. (Eastern) Tuesday, July 29, as HIPAA compliance experts Margret Amatayakul, MBA, RHIA, CHPS, CPHIT, CPEHR, CPHIE, CPORA, FHIMSS, and Kathy Perkins-Smerdel, BS, CHC, explain how to develop a thorough internal auditing program that encompasses privacy compliance and security risk analysis.

With HIPAA audits slated to resume and OCR monetary settlements steadily increasing, the threat of ending up on OCR’s “wall of shame” is greater than ever. OCR recently hit two covered entities with 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. Learn the tips and tricks necessary for conducting an internal audit before the federal government audits you.
