As a small or medium-sized healthcare provider, much of the (ePHI) Electronic Protected Health Information you maintain or send to others is critical to your organization and vital to the care of your patients.
Identity theft, lost or stolen laptops, not up-to-date computers, and hackers are just a few of the potential risks that you face as you receive, store, and transfer health data in electronic form.

HIPAA Security Risk Assessment is the first step in Risk Analysis and to a thorough Security Management Process.
