Ogle, BS, MS, CMPM, CHOP® DoctorsManagement FAQs How often should a chart audit be conducted? The OIG recommends audits to be conducted periodically, but besides this there are no specific requirements outlined by OIG or HIPAA. It is up to each organization to develop an audit plan in order to identify frequency of audit and what will be covered. This will vary from organization to organization based on risk level, infrastructure, etc. We offer a audit guidebook under Audit Zone, Resources, which provides pertinent information on conducting audits of medical records.
