A breach of patient information is the worst thing that can happen to a healthcare organization. It not only causes nearly irreparable bad press; it could also attract potential fines and time-consuming, expensive litigation. Conducting a proper Risk Assessment that will help the organization understand where it is at risk of an unauthorized breach and providing a basis for becoming HIPAA compliant is the antidote to these issues.

The speaker at this webinar will show which kinds of healthcare organizations need to perform a risk analysis and why, and how to choose the approach that is best suited for their organization. In this process, he will describe the types of breaches of Protected Health Information (PHI) that have already occurred and the reasons those breaches happened.
The speaker will also cover other related important topics related to risk assessment, such as ways of defining the specific risks, knowing how to assess the likelihood and impact of the risk, determining the level of severity of the risk for the organization, knowing ways by which to interpret the results of the risk assessment, using the results of the risk assessment for preparing the health care organization's policies and procedures, and ways of conducting the HIPAA training for its staff.
