Webinar addresses HIPAA audits


Preparing for OCR HIPAA audits and investigations is the subject of a new webinar taking place on December 16.

The Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA) has selected Clearwater Compliance CEO and founder Bob Chaput, to lead the web-based event, which will be held at 1 pm EST.

During the live event, he will explain the latest details and specifics of the audits and investigations to colleagues and senior management; specify what protocols and/or frameworks are used and what documentation is typically requested based on Clearwater’s work with 20 organizations; and help attendees understand how to develop an action plan to best prepare for OCR HIPAA audits and investigations.

“Organizations who aren’t adequately prepared for OCR audits and investigations are placing their businesses at significant financial and reputational risk,” said Chaput. “Attendees of this webinar will walk away with practical insight they can use to ensure they are taking appropriate steps well in advance.”

Clearwater is a provider of software and solutions that help organizations become and remain HIPAA/HITECH compliant. The company also has a long history of providing thought leadership based on timely HIPAA/HITECH topics, including web forums, webinars, seminars and white papers.

December’s webinar event follows a successful HCCA event in August, where Chaput helped attendees understand and address requirements for completing a bona fide HIPAA risk analysis.

“We are honored that HCCA trusts us to deliver guidance, education and support through its web forums and events,” said Chaput. “We look forward to helping its members effectively and proactively prepare for HIPAA compliance inquiries.”
