The vast majority of voters in Health Data Management's recent Online Poll are very confident of how their health organization would fair during a HIPAA Privacy/Security audit. The poll is unscientific, but the results from voters, many in the trenches of health care, remain intriguing.

Fifty-five percent of respondents said the HHS Office for Civil Rights would find their organization complying in good faith, with no major issues. Another 30 percent said OCR would find problems that need fixing but nothing major. Only 15 percent took a dimmer view: 6 percent said some major issues would be found and 9 percent believe they'd be in deep trouble and entering into a comprehensive resolution agreement.

HDM's new poll continues with the privacy/security theme, asking the degree of progress organizations have made in the past year to better secure protected health information.
