How to Reduce Your Risk of HIPAA Rule Violations and Avoid Thousands in Fines and Penalties or Other Damaging Action by the OCR
In addition, OCR continues to audit laboratories and pathology practices under its Phase 2 HIPAA Audit Program. While these audits help OCR identify best practices, they also ensure that your laboratory or practice is compliant with specific standards of the Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Rules. Noncompliance found during an audit can lead to an OCR investigation, which could result in fines, penalties, and other corrective action. And with the dramatic increase in fines and penalties recently, they could put your laboratory’s very survival in jeopardy.
To reduce your risk of serious action by OCR, take steps now to assess your HIPAA compliance program and fix any policies or procedures that could cause a finding of noncompliance.
