Healthcare providers are faced with the daunting task of protecting their patient’s privacy. A single data breach or loss can result in expensive fines, legal costs, restitution, and lost business due to negative publicity. The costs can skyrocket into the millions of dollars for large organizations and potentially lead to bankruptcy for small to mid-sized providers.

Proactively identifying and addressing patient privacy risks will save you money, years of frustration, protect your organizations reputation and your career. That starts with an annual Security Risk Assessment (SRA) conducted by a reputable, third-party, compliance and security expert to identify areas of vulnerability.

Typically, the SRA identifies an extensive list of risks that must be remediated (eliminate the risk) or mitigated (manage the risk). There are 20 Security Standards and more than 60 Safeguard Criteria which can quickly add up, especially for organizations with more than one location. Limited resources, outdated systems, complex workflows, and challenges finding skilled labor can make successful remediation efforts seem insurmountable.

Fortress Networks can address the identified gaps, and reduce the “shell shock” that often accompanies the completed SRA. Our team will help your staff comply with the technical, administrative, physical and organizational safeguards in HIPAA, and guide you through any necessary organizational or workflow changes. Remediation services from Fortress Networks provide a measurable path by which outside auditors can recognize your progress against SRA findings.

Take Action Before It’s Too Late
Its not enough to simply conduct an SRA. Healthcare providers are required by the ONC to make reasonable efforts to remediate any risks that are identified. In the event of a breach or loss, fines and legal costs grow exponentially for organizations that fail to take action.
