The HIPAA Security Rule Risk Assessment: A Must Do!

Stephen Burt, Wood Rodgers

The Hospice of North Idaho (HONI) payed $50,000 to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to settle potential HIPAA violations stemming from an incident which involved under 500 patients. After an unencrypted company laptop containing the electronic protected health (ePHI) information of 441 patients had been stolen, officials at the HHS Office for Civil Rights began its investigation and found that HONI had not conducted an adequate risk assessment to safeguard patient ePHI.  Have you?  This session will cover the nine steps found in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), SP 800-30, necessary to complete an effective security rule risk assessment.

CMS, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) and the Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) have launched an intense review of hospice utilization of GIP and its appropriateness. Participating in exploration of the GIP level of care and applying all you learn to “real life” situations will help you and your organization prepare for the increased attention and high level of scrutiny on GIP.
