OCR has initiated Phase 2 HIPAA Audits

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Civil Rights (OCR) has announced Phase 2 of their Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Audit Program.

Phase 2 audits are currently under way and begin with verification of an entity’s address and contact information. An email is being sent to covered entities and business associates requesting that contact information be provided to OCR. OCR will then transmit a pre-audit questionnaire to gather data about the size, type, and operations of potential auditees; this data will be used with other information to create potential audit subject pools.

OCR will review the policies and procedures used by covered entities and their business associates to meet selected standards and implementation specifications of the Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Rules. OCR anticipates that the audits will primarily be desk audits, although some on-site audits will be conducted.
