HIPAA Meaningful Use Risk Assessments

The first Meaningful Use HIPAA security implementation specification and core requirement number 15 requires a HIPAA security risk assessment. This means that ALL covered entities seeking Medicaid or Medicare incentives under Meaningful Use must conduct a risk analysis or assessment in order to qualify.

The HIPAA language states:

Core Requirement #15: “Conduct or review a security risk analysis per 45 CFR 164.308(a) (1) and implement security updates as necessary.”

As a key consulting service, Diligent eSecurity helps healthcare providers satisfy for Meaningful Use stimulus funding by providing the following services:

  • Information Security Risk Analysis (NIST Special Publication 800-30 guidelines) - to satisfy Meaningful Use core requirement # 15
  • Security Policy review and creation

Our risk analysis process provides (per the language of the HIPAA security rule) “an accurate and thorough assessment of the potential risks and vulnerabilities to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information held by the covered entity.”

Diligent eSecurity helps its clients minimize and mitigate the financial, legal and compliance risks associated with running healthcare organizations
