HIPAA Risk Treatment
How Do I Know If My Security Controls Regarding PHI and My EMR are Reasonable?
When risk assessments
are performed they bring to management’s attention what could go wrong with PHI and the EMR. But those risks remain a liability unless “reasonable and appropriate” security controls are established to protect that information and those controls remain effective.
Risk Treatment is the process for implementing the appropriate information security controls. Using formalized Risk Management processes, HALOCK will help you determine the appropriate level of Risk Treatment in a manner that is consistent with the risk analysis guidance from DHHS, CMS and NIST. In addition, HALOCK’s security engineers can work closely with your staff to assist in implementing the appropriate technical solutions that will help you achieve your compliance goals.
