The federal Office of Civil Rights recently launched its pilot program to start auditing covered entity provider organizations. This is a considerable change in policy - from the original HIPAA compliant-based investigation approach to a more aggressive way of ensuring industry wide HIPAA privacy and security compliance. With the advent of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act and specifically the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) components, both the requirements and enforcement have changed considerably requiring new and adjustments to old policies and procedures. HIPAA and HITECH issues raise not only compliance and legal concerns, but also business costs and public relations and reputational concerns. The purpose of this program is to provide a HIPAA privacy and security overview with a special focus on the new changes and challenges that are a direct result of the HITECH Act.
