Risk mitigation is a major challenge and, at the same time, an opportunity for risk management and business continuity planning activities.
When it comes to events such as the HHS’ formal HIPAA Audit Program, as mandated by the HITECH Act, it is becoming more and more clear that an auditor’s first impressions and subsequent on-site visits, reviews and audits will be impacted by the content of the audited organization’s Policies and Procedures.
How good are your organization’s policies and procedures?
Policies set the stage and serve as an organization’s foundation and initial roadmap for all follow-on compliance activities. Poorly designed and incomplete policies may result in an organization’s collapse during an audit.
And, even if you thought the policies and procedures of your organization were sound enough at one time, you must remember that a fully implemented compliance program requires continuous assessment and monitoring for effectiveness of those policies and procedures.
Attending a free webinar offering by the MalvernGroup on June 12 at 2:00-3:00 PM EST may be just what you need to help you determine the status of your own organization’s policies and procedures.
In this Webinar, you will learn
• How to differentiate a Policy from a Procedure
• What makes a good Policy
• The benefits of a good Policy
• The steps to write good Policy and Procedure
• What makes a bad Policy, and what makes an ugly (a really bad) Policy
• How HIPAA Policies and Procedures work hand-in-glove to make a successful compliance program.
