Please Call Me Out...But First!

    I know folks on the HIPAA eGroup as well as those who participated in the 2016 CI eGroup may be attending the 2017 CI so I thought to position the following question here in the hopes that a few people might remember.

    Let me set the stage.

    On Monday at the 2016 CI, during the session listed below:

    104 HIPAA Enforcement – Iliana Peters, Senior Advisor for HIPAA Compliance and Enforcement, HHS Office for Civil Rights

    …much of the discussion was centered around the HIPAA Audit Protocol which was posted on the OCR website literally just a couple of weeks before. One particular discussion point was how the protocol as listed on the website did not lend itself easily to being downloaded and remarks were made about how OCR would post a downloadable version “soon”.

    Before I continue…is there anyone who recalls this? If you have any anxiety about posting onlist, please let me know offlist.

    (Note: Many folks, including myself made copies available because of what I described above…so thanks to everyone who did so!)
