Most healthcare organizations are aware that regular Security Risk Assessments (SRAs) are no longer optional; instead, they are required and stringently enforced. HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules require organizations that handle health information to routinely review the administrative, physical, and technical safeguards they have in place to protect the security of patient health information (PHI). SRAs are also a mandatory requirement for providers seeking payment through the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, commonly known as the Meaningful Use Program.
Although conducting regular SRAs may seem to be a hassle, the cost of failing to conduct them and remediate risks is much worse. Penalties can include millions of dollars in fines, civil and criminal litigation, restitution, and damage to institutional and professional reputations.
The good news is Fortress Networks makes it painless and simple.
