The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act requires HIPAA-covered entities and their business associates to complete a risk assessment to identify all risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of ePHI. Not only is a risk assessment required for compliance, it allows organizations to identify and address risks before they can be exploited, thus helping to prevent costly data breaches.
Many healthcare organizations and business associates find annual risk assessments problematic, and fail to conduct comprehensive risk assessments that meet the requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule. Risk assessment failures are among the most common HIPAA violations cited by the HHS’ Office for Civil Rights in its audits and data breach investigations.
As the year draws to an end, it is now time to perform your annual HIPAA Security Risk assessment and help is at hand to help you comply with this important HIPAA provision.
