With the emphasis on EHR meaningful use attestation, we've see a great opportunity for healthcare organizations to institutionalize their security processes? Agree? Here's our take: http://wp.me/pymfm-D2
HIPAA risk analysis must be part of every Healthcare organization's IT process. Because of the sensitivity of the data as well as higher penalties associated with data breach it is very important to make it a top priority for hospital CIOs. I did review your blog entry and I do see value in what you are suggesting. I do wonder if monthly assessment would be enough. I think there needs to be systems in place to monitor 24/7/365 all systems with health data. There is also the need to ensure continued education of staff as well.
