Training Opportunity – HIPAA Right of Access Compliance

In 2019, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) launched the HIPAA Right of Access Initiative to advocate for individuals trying to obtain their health records in a timely manner at a reasonable cost as required by covered entities in the HIPAA Privacy Rule.

If your organization is not responding timely to requests for medical records, a complaint to the OCR can trigger an investigation resulting in fines and other consequences, such as being posted on the OCR HIPAA website and a forced Corrective Action Plan.

A dedicated government webpage lists HIPAA News Releases Y Bulletins listing OCR cases after investigating organizations which includes Right of Access settlements.

The American Institute of Healthcare Compliance now offers a Right of Access online training program with option to certify (online, with an assigned proctor).
