The BCI Computer’s Self Audit is available for all customers. Simple to use, the questions asked are those which could be seen on actual HIPAA audits. The questions are simple and concise and will quickly determine if your site is compliant.
Since 1996, compliance with HIPAA has been mandatory for all medical offices. Failure to comply with these standards and regulations has serious fiscal and judicial repercussions. With the passing of the Omnibus Rule in 2013, the Department of Health and Human Services has stated their intent to perform random HIPAA audits of medical practices. These audits, as it is assumed, can occur at any time and without any warning. Fines for HIPAA violations can reach an upwards of $1.5 million dollars per year with some situations resulting in higher fines. As such, it is the responsibility of the office to be “soft-audited”; an audit performed either by an in-office compliance specialist or a third-party auditing company like BCI Computers. We provide a Online HIPAA Survey. The survey is short (3-5 minutes) and allows for a quick assessment of HIPAA compliance. We recommend this self audit for any office that is beginning the compliance process or is ready for an annual HIPAA Training Session.
