Using hipaa risk assessment software

  1. 1. Using HIPAA Risk Assessment Software HIPAA risk assessment software is an important tool that assists your business in protecting sensitive electronic patient health information. Installing HIPAA risk assessment software provides your business with a resource for identifying and rectifying threats that could result in a data breach. Web based software is an ideal solution for any business within the medical industry, including insurance claims companies and other third party billing organizations. What is a Data Breach? A data breach occurs anytime that patient health information is accessed or shared with an unauthorized third party. Loss and theft of information are also considered data breaches that should be prevented. HIPAA risk assessment software is designed to spot any potential problems with how your patient data is shared, stored and protected. You will need to include an assessment of your billing software during the risk assessment if you have paper records. With most companies moving toward electronic patient records to meet current HIPAA guidelines, it is vital to use HIPAA risk assessment software that protects your business from several types of threats. How Software Can Prevent Data Breach
  2. 2. There are three main types of threats that may cause a breach of data. A human threat includes both past and present employees, while a natural threat can be caused by factors such as hurricanes or other natural events that may cause a severe loss of data. Environmental threats include incidents such as data loss caused by power outages. Businesses that use HIPAA risk assessment software that rely on cloud, or web based, technology benefit because their electronic patient health information is stored in a secure location and the software is designed to prevent unauthorized access by employees who may wish to cause harm to your business. HIPAA risk assessment is a complex process that is simplified by using HIPAA risk assessment software. Today, all organizations that handle patient health information must perform a risk assessment as outlined in the current HIPAA guidelines. Your organization will need to provide a written report of the risk assessment results. With the right software, HIPAA risk assessment reports are generated without the struggle of understanding the dozens of guidelines and regulations that have been implemented over the past several years. Choosing Software The best HIPAA risk assessment software is user-friendly and backed by a customer support team that can walk you through the steps to identifying and preventing risks using the information provided by your HIPAA risk assessment results. Authentication and secure log-in are both important features to have in HIPAA risk assessment software. You will need to provide proof of your results to comply with current HIPAA guidelines, so your software will need to provide a report of the security risks identified and suggestions on how to remedy any identified issues. With the right HIPAA compliant software, your business can meet current guidelines and be prepared for the changes to come.
