HIPAA Risk Assessments are Not Optional

Posted by on in Best Practices

HIPAA Assessments are Not OptionalThe end of the year is almost here. If your healthcare organization hasn’t had at least one Security Risk Assessment in the last 12 months, your organization may be out of compliance.

Small practices generally cite insufficient staff or time to keep the practice running while also researching and creating the required security practices, policies and procedures as well as ensuring staff is getting HIPAA training. You’ve been entrusted to care for your patients, and that includes protecting their ePHI. We know it’s overwhelming and Weston is here to help.
