The First Step:

The HIPAA Security Risk Assessment (SRA)

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security Rule requires that covered entities and business associates (that means all general dental and dental specialty practices in the United States) conduct a risk assessment of their healthcare organization. The SRA is part of your ongoing HIPAA compliance process and needs to be completed at least once every 12 months.

A risk assessment helps your practice ensure it is compliant with HIPAA’s administrative, physical, and technical safeguards. A proper risk assessment is a deep dive into your network to reveal areas where your organization’s protected health information (PHI) could be at risk. The key to a HIPAA Security Risk Assessment is to come away with a Management Plan that addresses any risks identified in the risk assessment.

Can you do it yourself? Yes, you can try. There are online forms and Q&A assessments in some HIPAA notebooks. Many offices have “do It yourself” assessments. These assessments fall short of what is required of a proper risk assessment.They do not look into your network to determine what security measures you already have in place and if they are effective. Nor do they assess what security measures are needed to not only meet HIPAA requirements, but provide a plan of how to increase your network’s security and decrease the chance of a data breach. A proper risk assessment is a deep dive into your office’s computer network and needs to be completed by a trained IT professional with the proper tools to fully assess your network.

  • A proper risk assessment is a deep dive into your network to evaluate the likelihood and impact of potential risks to all e-PHI. Covering Administrative, Physical and Technical Safeguards provisioned in the Security Rule.
  • Develop a Management Plan to address the risks identified in the risk assessment
  • Risk assessment is an ongoing process and needs to be run at least once every 12 months.

What Does Your Practice Need to be HIPAA Compliant?

  • Policies and procedures to ensure protection of ePHI that comply with State and Federal law.
  • An annual enterprise level Risk Assessment that meets the HIPAA standards.
    • It is highly recommended that this is managed by a third-party compliance company. 
    • Most IT providers do not have the experience to perform this properly and they may have a bias if they manage the network. It is a similar concept to having outside auditors audit the financials vs the in-house accounting team.

Business Associates Agreements

  • It is recommended by HIPAA to have up-to-date business associates agreements (BAA) in place for service providers to your practice including but not limited to:
    • IT providers
    • Outside billing entities who access PHI
    • Data backup services
