Phase 2 of HIPAA Audits to Launch This Year

PHASE 2 OF HIPAA AUDITS 
TO LAUNCH THIS YEAR
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced that it would be conducting a second phase of HIPAA audits.
The audit program is intended to be primarily for information gathering, but the HHS Office for Civil Rights will assess whether to open a separate compliance review in cases where an audit indicates serious compliance issues.

Therefore, it is important that dental practices have a current HIPAA risk analysis in place; that their Notice of Privacy Practices is current and acknowledgement of receipt forms are maintained.
