Feds ask firms about HIPAA audit experience
Modern Healthcare

The top federal healthcare privacy and security regulator wants to know what officials from more than 100 organizations that have undergone privacy and security audits thought of the process and what can be done to improve it.

The office will ask leaders from all audited organizations—which included health plans, healthcare claims clearinghouses and providers—to complete an online survey asking them to “measure the effect,” including its costs, on their operations, and “gauge their attitudes towards the audit overall,” according to a notice of an official “information collection” activity to be published in the Federal Register by the Office for Civil Rights at HHS.
