The Auditors Are Coming: How to Prepare for an OCR Audit: All health care practitioners now face HIPAA-HITECH enforcement. Many experience the HITECH-mandated Office for Civil Rights (OCR) audits as intimidating, nerve-racking, and in other ways stressful. This program empowers practitioners with vital information as they prepare for the inevitable audit. Attorney James M. Barclay provides an insightful look at the OCR audit process by covering the following topics: reasons for self-audits, sources that generate an audit, how to form an audit team (and who should be on it), the categories of an audit, what the audit team will look for, the steps involved in conducting an audit, documentation requirements, and the review process of an OCR audit. Finally, Barclay walks viewers through one portion of an actual OCR audit. (29 minutes)
