The standards for Privacy and Security of Individually Identifiable Health Information establish a set of national standards for the protection of certain health information impacting covered entities. These standards are better known as the Privacy Rule and the Security Rule. Are YOU a covered entity? Do you know your duties as a covered entity? Now let’s say you’ve been following a thorough, detailed set of written security measures that you found on the internet and tweaked to fit your organization. Unfortunately, according to the HIPAA Security Rule: it’s not enough. Under the Security Rule, the process a plan uses to decide what it needs to do to protect electronic protected health information ("ePHI") is just as important as the policies and procedures themselves. Enter: the risk assessment.
