A HIPAA Risk Analysis is one of the most important steps for Covered Entities (CE) to undertake in ensuring HIPAA compliance.
The Risk Analysis is the critical and foundational, federally mandated first step in the development and maintenance of your HIPAA compliance program, and is a step that many CE's do overlook, which can be both risky and quite costly. Failure to conduct a thorough and comprehensive risk assessment has been a consistently cited deficiency in an overwhelming number of recent HIPAA enforcement cases, demonstrating that this step is extremely challenging for organizations.
HIPAA requires a comprehensive, customized, enterprise-wide risk analysis that looks into all systems that touch protected health information, including billing systems, email and other requirements. This critical step becomes the basis for your HIPAA program to pinpoint your organization's vulnerabilities and deficiencies.
Far too many health providers believe that if they honor their obligation of maintaining client confidentiality, they will be HIPAA compliant. In addition, many also believe that if their electronic health record provider promises HIPAA compliance, they will HIPAA compliant. Unfortunately, these are commonly held, as well as dangerous myths. The reality is that HIPAA is far more complex than most entities realize, requiring continual, ongoing efforts to protect patient information.
HIPAA has very specific privacy requirements for managing protected health information that reaches far beyond the familiar Notice of Privacy Practices, and HIPAA security regulations also compel providers to consider all electronic (and paper) aspects of their practice.
