Why Should You Attend :
In addition to the negative publicity and potential fines, a breach of a patient’s health information often leads to litigation which is also time consuming and costly. The way to avoid these situations is to perform a Risk Assessment to understand where the health care organization is risk of an unauthorized breach and provide a basis for becoming HIPAA compliant.
There are three reasons why a Risk Assessment is necessary:
First, both the HIPAA Privacy and Security Regulations require a Risk Assessment for the organization to be HIPAA compliant.
Second, as a result of the Risk Assessment the organization knows where it needs to address its efforts to minimize its risk.
Third, if a breach should occur, a Risk Assessment is a demonstration that the health care organization has used reasonable diligence and either eliminate fines or keep them to a minimum.
