HIPAA's privacy and security enforcer has hired an outside firm to help build its HITECH-required HIPAA auditing plan, the government agency tells HealthLeaders Media.

The Office for Civil Rights (OCR), which carries out for the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) enforcement of the HIPAA privacy and security rules, says it does not have a timetable for when the audit plan begins.
