Are You Ready for a HIPAA Audit?
CynergisTek, a health information technology security consultancy, is offering a full-scale mock audit for HIPAA privacy, security and breach notification compliance to prepare covered entities for real audits from the HHS Office for Civil Rights.
The mock audit will apply OCR timeliness and follow the governments process starting with receiving an audit notification letter. Other areas covered include complying required documentation and reviewing them for deficiencies, onsite interviews with staff, draft and final audit reports, a workshop of findings and lessons learned, and a performance evaluation presentation with senior executives.
CynergisTek will hold your staff to OCR standards when assessing your organizations ability to demonstrate HIPAA compliance and will identify your organizations readiness and ability to respond, according to information from the company. The audit may be disruptive to normal operations, as would a real one, it warns.
