Frequently Asked Questions
What is an Online Interactive Security Risk Assessment Tool?
It is a web-based tool that allows you to perform a technology security risk assessment of your Protected Health Information (PHI) for a typical small medical practice*.
Who is the Tool for?
This tool can be used by anyone wishing to assess healthcare PHI-related security risks that might exist in a practice that uses electronic devices like Networking equipment, desktops, laptops, mobile devices, servers, etc.
What do I have to do?
It is a 5-step process:
Step 1: Preparation introduces the user (practice) to the risk assessment
Step 2: In identification the user goes through the risks (structured in modules / submodules) and answers YES or NO to the statements. These are always affirmative statements for consistency and are arranged in a logical order.
Step 3: Evaluation for each problem spotted, the end-user evaluates the risk
Step 4: Action Plan is filled in with measures to tackle all stated risks
Step 5: Report the action plan is converted into a report to be downloaded and printed
How long will it take?
It’s impossible to say how long an assessment will take in general as the tools differ according to your practice setup. Usually, it should not take more than 2 to 3 hours to complete your assessment.
Do I need to prepare?
You do not need any kind of specific preparation to start using the tool, however you should take some time to think about who is going to carry out the risk assessment, how your IT and other people involved in PHI are going to be involved in the process, etc.
EHR 2.0 will not be liable for any false, inaccurate, inappropriate or incomplete information stored in the tool or any other damages as a result of using the software.
Moreover, this tool is not intended to cover all the risks of every healthcare practice but to help you put the risk assessment process into practice. For the tool to be fully effective it needs to be adapted to the context of your particular practice – some items might need to be added others omitted if they are not relevant.
For practical and analytical reasons, the tool presents problems separately, but in practices they may be intertwined. Therefore interactions between the different problems or risk factors identified must be taken into account.
Therefore, EHR 2.0 does not accept any liability for damages and claims in case a tool does not cover all risks of a given sector or any potential audit issues.
Moreover, the Agency and the organizations involved in the production of the tool do not accept any liability for damages and claims arising out of the use or inability to use the tool and the data stored therein. Similarly, EHR 2.0 does not accept any liability in case of unavailability of the function of the tools to print the report, recording the risk assessment automatically generated by the tool. Therefore, the customer has to make sure, at any time, to be in possession of a printed, accurate and up-dated risk assessment.
