Webinar: Security Risk Analysis for HIPAA Covered Entities and Business Associates

  • Have you identified the e-PHI within your practice? This includes e-PHI that you create, receive, maintain  or transmit?
  • What are the external sources of e-PHI? For example, do vendors or consultants create, receive, maintain or transmit e-PHI.
  • What are the human, natural, and environmental threats to information systems that contain e-PHI?
  • Do you want to attest for an EHR incentive program by completing your security risk analysis?

Many health care organizations and their business associates understand they are not meeting the HIPAA compliance requirements for risk analysis and they are concerned this could result in stiff fines and penalties.

  • Do I have to hire an outside security consultant to perform a risk analysis?
  • How can I make sure they focus on the core requirements to protect ePHI and a possible OCR audit, without breaking our budget or requiring an inordinate amount of time?
  • Are there resources available that our team can use that do not require someone with a security background?
