HIPAA Audits

HIPAA Audit Guide & Protocol Checklist – Professor Daniel Solove and Maggie Gloeckle have written a set of references to help you navigate the process of preparing for a HIPAA audit. The HIPAA Audit Guide provides a detailed overview of the audit process covering OCR’s selection criteria, types of audits and timelines. They have also provided some of the questions to prepare for and samples of the types of documents you will see during the audit. The HIPAA Audit Protocol Checklist is an Excel document that consists of a chart with the information that HHS will look for when they conduct an audit. They have taken this information from HHS and have put it into an easy-to-use and organized format, where you can filter, search, and adjust the list as necessary. You can add your notes to it as well.
