What is a HIPAA Audit?


Are you a covered entity or business associate who uses protected health information (PHI) to provide services to the public? 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.
