OCR Launches Phase 2 HIPAA Audits for Covered Entities and Business Associates: Are You Ready?

Why Should you Attend:

Widespread systemic compliance problems, fines in the millions of dollars, and even jail time for some medical providers. All due to a lack of preparation or even (un)intentional neglect of HIPAA regulations. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced an agreement in April 2015 with Cornell Prescription Pharmacy (CPP) a small store Denver, Colorado to settle HIPAA violations. CPP will make a payment of $125,000, pay its own legal and related costs and follow a two year corrective action plan designed and supervised by HHS. The press release issued by HHS announcing the agreement emphasized HIPAA compliance is mandatory for organizations "regardless of size". Investigators found Cornell Pharmacy failed reasonably safeguard Protected Health Information, implement HIPAA Privacy Rule policies and procedures or provide and document HIPAA workforce training. If CPP does not comply with the plan HHS will impose a Civil Money Penalty (CMP) for the violations it has already found. The CMP would be in addition to CPP´s $125,000 payment and may be reflect any other HIPAA violations by CPP that comes to attention of HHS. This agreement demonstrates the new, higher level of strict HIPAA enforcement by HHS and the consequences for any small provider that does not implement the HIPAA Rules.
