HIPAA Audit Reports
Audits are hard. We make sure it’s worth it.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) sets a national standard for the protection of consumers’ PHI by mandating risk management best practices and physical, administrative, and technical safeguards. HIPAA was established to provide greater transparency for individuals whose information may be at risk, and the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces compliance with the HIPAA Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Rules.
Don’t waste time on an audit that leaves you feeling uncertain.
What if your audit misses something critical that will surprise you later?
What if your client isn’t satisfied with your audit report?
What if your current auditor isn’t experienced enough to evaluate your advanced controls?
We believe if you’re going to do an audit, it should be worth it.
Assurance doesn’t come from a checklist. It requires a diligent examination of your unique environment from trusted cybersecurity experts to know your controls are effective. Be sure your audit gives you the results you deserve.

How much does a HIPAA audit cost?
Pricing for a HIPAA audit depends on scoping factors, including what type of audit you need, physical locations, third parties, and if the audit is combined with any others. Pricing will also vary with the inclusion of a gap analysis or additional remediation time.
How long does a HIPAA audit take to complete?
The average HIPAA audit can take anywhere from weeks to months, depending on your level of preparedness and staff’s availability for interviews and control demonstration. To satisfy the audit requirements for an engagement, the auditor must validate scope, perform testing procedures, and document conclusions. These steps require time from the service organization’s management, which can be compressed or extended to meet your timeline needs. You can save time by leveraging the Online Audit Manager to maintain the audit evidence you need for compliance.
What do I receive when my HIPAA audit is complete?
A HIPAA audit culminates in a HIPAA report. The components and formatting of HIPAA reports delivered by KirkpatrickPrice are written by our in-house Professional Writing team and written based off of CERT/CC, the SANS Institute, and NIST standards. Organizations can provide their HIPAA report to outside parties to show independent third-party verification regarding the
fairness and suitability of their information security management, controls, and practices that protect PHI.
How long is a HIPAA audit report valid?
The opinion stated in a HIPAA audit report is valid for twelve months following the date that the report was issued.
How often does a HIPAA audit need to be performed?
Industry standard is to schedule a HIPAA audit to be performed annually or when significant changes are made that will impact the control environment. Any frequency less than that will demonstrate a lack of commitment to compliance, plus it may cause distrust in the service organization’s systems.
