Carrying out a HIPAA and HITECH risk analysis


The importance of conducting a risk analysis updating it can be gauged from the fact that failure to conduct a written risk analysis qualifies as “willful neglect”, which carries the highest Civil Money Penalty (“CMP”). This cannot be waived by the DHHS unlike violations that happen due to a reasonable cause.

Since risk analysis is a required implementation specification under the Security Rule, failure to do one amounts to willful neglect. If the civil money penalties for not doing a risk analysis were high enough; consider the costs associated with remediation: Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee not only had to pay the $1.5 million settlement, but also incurred $17 million in remediation costs-costs that might have been avoided had it done an updated risk analysis. Other seven-figure settlements involved failure to do the required initial risk analysis.

Risk analysis is at the core of HIPAA and HITECH
