On Monday July 11th, the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) HIPAA Audits took a step forward in their anticipated program when over 150 Covered Entities were notified of their selection for participation in a “desk” or remote audit. The selected entities are required to submit documentation by Friday July 22nd, just ten business days following notification. Additional phases of these OCR Audits will occur in 2016.
