Our team will conduct and review a SRA in accordance that will address all areas of the HIPAA Security Rule and a number of additional areas. Our team will use the latest risk assessment tool designed by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), in collaboration with the HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR) Office of Civil Rights (OCR) that will ensure the highest level of compliance and not recreate the wheel of conducting risk assessments..
In 2019, the SRA measure will remain a requirement of the Medicare Promoting Interoperability Program as it is imperative in ensuring the safe delivery of patient health data. Beginning in 2019, eligible hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals must attest that they completed the actions included in the Security Risk Analysis measure at some point during the calendar year in which the Electronic Health Record reporting period occurs to successfully participate in the program.
Lack of a documented SRA is the number one reason organizations face the heaviest fines if the OCR is conducting an investigation of your organization in the event of a breach. Our SRA will ensure your organization meets this requirement and not incur the heavier fines.
Our team will prepare formal reports every quarter for your organization that senior leadership will understand the risk they face as our SRA program will uncover your organization's biggest risk and present the best solutions to mitigate them in a costly manner.
Our experience has shown us that a well documented SRA satisfies the many security audits that are conducted by external stakeholders (like cybersecurity insurance) that shows due diligence in managing risk. Hospitals have a number of security audits from external organizations that need to be answered throughout the calendar year.
