Compliance 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.
What is a Security Risk Assessment?
A security risk analysis 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.
