we share ways to be proactive in light of the news that random HIPAA audits are returning.

We discuss why there’s still no HIPAA police; the function of these random audits; where the gaps in compliance have been historically; what auditors will likely be looking for; the importance of risk analyses, risk mitigation plans, and policies & procedures; how many HIPAA covered entities were audited the last time the program was active; and PCT’s resources to help you get started with formal compliance in a shame-free way.

we discuss the recent Change Healthcare cyber attack and its impact for group practices.

We cover what we know and what we don’t know yet; resources to help you take practical steps; how many people are impacted by this breach; the ongoing investigations; ransomware attacks; who is liable for this incident; maintaining operational continuity; and the importance of being proactive in your security practices.
