HIPAA: Audit Exposure and Readiness

May 1, 2012










The HITECH-mandated HIPAA audits are now underway; target covered entities are experiencing complete scrutiny by auditors of their HIPAA compliance programs. Depending on audit-preparedness, this scrutiny can be very uncomfortable.

Meanwhile, OCR will be issuing final regulations that will place additional HIPAA obligations on covered entity and their business associates.

Attend this timely breakfast seminar, co-sponsored by Dilworth Paxson and KPMG, and get first-hand information about OCR’s audit process and lessons thus far, the upcoming regulations and what you can do to prepare.

You will hear perspectives from a preeminent auditor of covered entities, outside HIPAA counsel and academic medical center in house counsel; there will also be opportunity for interactive discussion.

Important information for all organizations that must respond to HIPAA: health care providers, hospitals, physician groups, senior service organizations, health insurers, employee benefits plans, pharmaceutical companies, PBMs, TPAs, benefits consultants, billing companies and other health care industry vendors.

This program has approval for 1.5 hours of substantive continuing legal education credit in PA, NJ, and NY, through the Insurance Society of Philadelphia.  This event is free of charge; we hope that you will join us.

Search Tips

Our Web site's search function employs a variety of techniques to help you make the most of your queries. In this tips section we use square brackets [ ] to signal queries, so [antitrust and litigation] is one query, while [antitrust] and [litigation] are two.

  • Exact phrases: Eliminate unnecessary search results by surrounding your search phrase with quotation marks. Placing ["project finance"] in quotes will return specific results and discard additional results that simply have the words "project" and "finance" peppered on a page.
  • Wildcard symbol: If you're not exactly sure how a piece of information you want is phrased, use the following symbol (*) as a word root expander. A search for [child*] will find not only "child," but also results with words like "children" and "childhood."
