Topic: Understanding HIPAA Compliance, Audits & Enforcement

Body of Knowledge Domain: Risk and Compliance Managemen

  1. Key areas of HIPAA and HITECH laws and regulations in order to meet compliance requirements.
  2. What breaches are, how to report them and the potential financial consequences.
  3. The value of security risk assessments, and how to perform them.
  4. The roles and responsibilities of Business Associates
  5. How HIPAA audits are conducted and what is expected to pass.
  6. Fines and other penalties for non-compliance.
