HIPAA Enforcement is Becoming Commonplace
As a result of the changes driven by The HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health) Act, all Covered Entities and Business Associates must be compliant. Completing a formal Security Risk Analysis is an essential step in doing so. Breaches over 500 must be reported within 60 days (less for many States).
Audits requiring a current HIPAA Security Risk Analysis can be triggered by: Medicare Promoting Interoperability, Payment Program Eligibility (MIPS), Patient Complaints, Random Audit Programs, Breach Notice (Hacking Incident, Theft or Loss, Unauthorized Access, etc.), State Attorney Generals, or Breaches by Business Associates.
What is a Security Risk Analysis?
A security risk analysis (SRA) identifies risks and vulnerabilities that can leave an organization susceptible to a data breach resulting in compromised health information. According to the Office of Health and Human Services, a Security Risk Analysis must be completed and reviewed each year and its documentation proves due-diligence.
