NIST toolkit for HIPAA security assessment

The NIST HIPAA Security toolkit application released recently  is intended to help organizations better understand the requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule, implement those requirements, and assess those implementations in their operational environment.  Per NIST release, target users include  HIPAA covered entities, business associates, and other organizations such as those providing HIPAA Security Rule implementation, assessment, and compliance services. Target user organizations can range in size from large nationwide health plans with vast information technology (IT) resources to small health care providers with limited access to IT expertise.

The HIPAA Security Rule Toolkit User Guide explains how to use the toolkit.
