OCR issued “Guidance on Risk Analysis Requirements under the HIPAA Security Rule” in July 2010. Yet, healthcare entities struggle to perform this foundational compliance requirement and critical cyber risk management step.

As of this writing, in 37 OCR cases involving ePHI that resulted in Settlement Agreements / Corrective Active Plans, 33 organizations or 89% presented inaccurate or incomplete risk analyses. The 2012 Phase I audits showed 68% of the 115 audited organizations having adverse findings related to risk analysis.

Learn the root causes of these adverse findings and, more importantly, learn exactly what OCR expects in your HIPAA risk analysis and how to conduct an OCR-quality risk analysis. This webinar is designed to help covered entities and business associates understand and act on the specific Risk Analysis requirements included in the HIPAA Security Rule.

Learn how Clearwater may complete a Confidential, Complimentary Review of your current risk analysis, under the direction of outside counsel, and advise you of important actions to take to conduct an OCR-Quality HIPAA Risk Analysis.
