|HHS Inspector General Report: OCR Should Strengthen Its Oversight of Covered Entities' Compliance With the HIPAA Privacy Standards|
Office of Inspector General [OIG], U.S. Department of Health and Human Services [HHS]
Sept. 29, 2015
"OCR's oversight is primarily reactive; it investigates possible noncompliance primarily in response to complaints. OCR has not fully implemented the required audit program to proactively assess possible noncompliance from covered entities.... OCR documented corrective action in its case-tracking system for most of these cases; however, OCR did not have complete documentation of corrective actions taken by the covered entities in 26 percent of closed privacy cases."
