What is the OCR Audit Phase 2?[2]

 

 Program Objectives: 

The audit program is an important part of OCR’s overall health information privacy, security, and breach notification compliance activities. OCR uses the audit program to assess the HIPAA compliance efforts of a range of entities covered by HIPAA regulations. The audits present an opportunity to examine mechanisms for compliance, identify best practices, and discover risks and vulnerabilities that may not have come to light through OCR’s ongoing complaint investigations and compliance reviews [3]
