HIPAA Security Risk Analysis Services
Protecting health information in all forms is crucial for both your organization and your patients. Protecting health information includes, but is not limited to, HIPAA compliance. HIPAA Privacy and Security regulations require healthcare providers and organizations, as well as their business associates (BAs) and subcontractors, to develop and follow procedures that ensure the confidentiality and security of protected health information (PHI) when it is created, received, maintained or transmitted. A security risk analysis (SRA) is the first step in ensuring the security of your health information. An SRA facilitates analysis of your environment and determination of vulnerabilities. Also, a risk remediation plan is developed to secure health information and ensure the implementation of the HIPAA Security Rule’s administrative, physical, and technical safeguards.
Our SRA Services
We offer security risk analysis services including conducting and documenting a security risk analysis, developing a remediation plan and recommending security controls to address identified vulnerabilities. The time commitment for completion of the security risk analysis and remediation plan varies due to practice size, number of locations, number of patient data systems, prior security risk analysis, and other factors. We typically allow up to eight hours for our initial security risk analysis and remediation plan review. Additional technical assistance is also available to provide additional security control recommendations, identify information security policy needs, and other remediation activities.
