CMS and OIG Meaningful Use Audits Increase, HIPAA Breaches factor in. What’s your Strategy?

If your hospital is notified by CMS that is auditing your organization’s  Meaningful Use (MU) attestation you will need a clear action plan and the advice of experienced people who have led MU audit defense work.

Additionally, if your organization had a HIPAA breach in any year when stimulus funds for MU of an EHR were received, you may be ineligible for those funds.  It is also important to be current regarding regulations and how they define patient harm.

Contact our firm if you believe your attestation is being audited or you have concerns about mitigating the risk of HIPAA breaches.
