Are you compliant?
A HIPAA Security Risk Analysis is an assessment of the potential risks and vulnerabilities to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of e-PHI across your organization.
Who must conduct an audit?
LTPAC providers who receive Meaningful Use incentive payments from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for implementing electronic health record (EHR) systems are required by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) to conduct an annual HIPAA Security Risk Analysis.
If you have not performed a HIPAA Security Risk Analysis annually, as required, you may have received improper Meaningful Use payments from CMS and may be required to refund those payments.
Even if you do not receive Meaningful Use payments, you are still subject to HIPAA regulations, with fines totaling up to $10,000 per patient record. Also if you have experienced a security incident, a change in ownership, turnover in key staff or management, have not conducted an analysis in two years, or you are planning to on-board new technology, you should conduct this analysis.
