Many healthcare organizations – as well as their business associates – overlook the need to conduct a risk assessment from a HIPAA privacy perspective, which is equally as important as conducting a security risk assessment, but typically receives less attention.

While protecting patient data should be enough incentive on its own to motivate health professionals to secure protected health information (PHI), healthcare organizations, especially providers, can also receive significant penalties for non-compliance with HIPAA regulations, with fines ranging between $100 and $1.5 million per violation. Unfortunately, violations are not uncommon.


Key Items Considered

  1. STAYING HIPAA COMPLIANT WITH RISK ASSESSMENTS ​
  2. HIPAA RISK ASSESSMENT TEMPLATE​
  3. RECOMMENDED RISK ASSESSMENT TOOLS FOR HIPAA COMPLIANCE​
  4. FINAL THOUGHTS​
