How to do a HIPAA Risk Analysis – By Compliance Global Inc.




Jocelyn Samuels, the top Federal official in charge of HIPAA enforcement, said the one critical thing covered entities and business associates must do to ensure compliance with HIPAA’s Privacy, Breach, and Security Rules is a HIPAA Risk Assessment – “… a comprehensive and thorough approach to assessing and addressing the risks to all of the protected health information (PHI) they maintain.” Risk Analysis is mandatory, however, 2012 audits found 80% of health care providers failed to comply with this mandatory requirement.

Why Should You Attend:

Covered entities and business associates are under intense pressure to do a HIPAA Risk Analysis of all PHI they maintain – and have been left on their own to do it.

• HIPAA Rules do not explain how to do a Risk Analysis
• HHS employee directory provides 9 pages of guidance, published in 2010 that “…is based on recommendations of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)”. However, the lengthy, complex NIST recommendations cited by HHS are highly technical and specifically geared to “computer security training”
• A “Security Risk Assessment Tool”, designed only for small medical practices, is available at HealthIT.gov but does not cover the HIPAA Privacy Rule and carries the express warning, “Use of this tool is neither required by nor guarantees compliance with federal, state or local laws.”

No wonder HHS found 80% of health care providers failed to do the Risk Analysis. HIPAA violations are increasing dramatically. 2015 is the “Year of the Breach”. Expect both increased government enforcement and private lawsuits.
