Has your Annual Risk Analysis for your internal office network been performed?
164.308(a)(1)(ii)(a) “Security Management Process – Conduct an accurate and thorough assessment of the potential risks and vulnerabilities to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information held by the covered entity.
Our Security Risk Analysis program will help medical organizations satisfy the HIPAA/HITECH requirement to enlist a third-party service provider for their mock audits. A certified IT engineer will visit the organization’s office and search for any areas of vulnerability in the storage and transmission of confidential health information. Upon completion, Medical ITG will provide a certificate proving documentation of security policies and procedures.
Our Security Risk Analysis Program will help medical practices become compliant with HIPAA and HITECH before another round of audits. As a result, your organization can save thousands or even millions of dollars in fines and penalties.
The Security Risk Analysis Program will search for such HIPAA compliance failures as:
- Not performing regular security audits and training
- Improper disposal of patient records
- Unprotected storage of private health information
- Not creating access controls levels for patient records
- Not updating data security policies and procedures
