CI Session 604...BONUS..."HOW TO" Focus...Audits

  • 1.  CI Session 604...BONUS..."HOW TO" Focus...Audits

    Posted 03-17-2019 11:26 AM
    Rachel and I are going to include in our FAST TRACK of topics for Session 604 Tuesday, 1:30 - 2:30 PM very useful "HOW TO" information for those folks who are considering doing either or both of two audits that I am ALWAYS promoting...the Alpha and Omega audits...which essentially are audits used to determine if access to ePHI was either initiated or terminated according to policy.

    With all of the focus on cybersecurity and issues that we are reading about, to include what happens when accounts are not deactivated, it seems to make sense that learning HOW TO do these audits is not only a good exercise in learning how to use some key functions in Excel, but also is a meaningful audit to support HIPAA compliance as well as General compliance (for example, dates associated with training, incident management, etc)

    The EXTRA BONUS is that this same approach can be used for other audits that people may be thinking about using for their own auditing and monitoring purposes and objectives.
