How Risk Assessments play an important role in Healthcare

Sep18



HIPAA: Risk Assessment

Risk assessment helps covered entities ensure they are compliant with the HIPAA necessities in terms of physical, technical, and administrative safeguards. It also helps in showing potential areas where an organization might be putting PHI at risk.

Under HIPAA regulations, the risk analysis is part of the administrative safeguard requirement. Covered entities need to assess the possibility and impact of potential risks to e-PHI, implement appropriate security measure to address those risk areas, and document the security measures, according to HHS. Where appropriate, the reason for adopting those measures should also be documented. 1

“Risk analysis should be an ongoing process, in which a covered entity frequently reviews its records to track access to e-PHI and detect security incidents, periodically evaluates the effectiveness of security measures put in place, and regularly reevaluates potential risks to e-PHI,” HHS states on its website.

Telegenisys Inc. is committed to securing client data to the highest standards and its data center has been externally audited for HIPAA Certification.
