                                    HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR) can show up

Office Manager                           • If your organization is not ready, the HIPAA rules
                                         have new, significantly higher fines, including
Contracts Manager                        mandatory minimum fines of $10,000 for willful
                                         neglect of compliance. All HIPAA entities need to
                                         be fully in compliance and prepared for an audit at
                                         any time, or risk the significant fines for non-
                                         compliance.

                                         help prevent security problems, and help prepare
