A HIPAA risk assessment is used to determine key risk factors–or gaps–that need remediation within your healthcare business or organization.
Your HIPAA Security Risk Assessment requires you to audit your organization on the following parts of the HIPAA rule: Administrative, Physical, and Technical Safeguards. A Risk Assessment alone will NOT make you HIPAA compliant. Instead, think of it as laying the groundwork for the rest of your compliance plan. Once you’ve conducted your HIPAA risk assessment using The Guard™ software and risk assessment tool, you’ll be able to identify any gaps in your HIPAA compliance, and create the robust remediation plans required by federal regulation.
