Protect your ePHI, satisfy meaningful use and protect your practice in case of OCR audit
HIPAA established important national standards for the privacy and security of protected health information and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) established breach notification requirements to provide greater transparency for individuals whose information may be at risk. HITECH requires the HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR) to conduct periodic audits of covered entity and business associate compliance with the HIPAA Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Rules.
Security Risk Assessments are no longer optional, in fact they are required and strictly enforced. Security Risk Assessments are also a mandatory requirement for healthcare providers seeking payment through the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, commonly known as the Meaningful Use Program.
While conducting a regular Security Risk Assessment may seem to be big headache, the cost of failing to conduct them and remediate risks which are discovered is much worse. Penalties for violations have grown and now include heavy fines, civil and criminal litigation, restitution, and considerable damage to institutional and professional reputations.
