One of the most important steps within a HIPAA Risk Management program is to test compliance with the HIPAA Privacy & Security Rules. The HIPAA risk assessment process involves conducting an in-depth review and analysis of policies, procedures and documentation within the organization. This exercise requires working together with staff to test their understanding of the requirements with current policies, procedures and controls to assess potential gaps with compliance with the HIPAA Privacy & Security Rules.
The HIPAA Privacy Rule regulates organization to protect an individual’s protected health information (PHI). The Rule requires safeguards to protect the privacy of PHI, and allows an individual to have rights over their health information.

The HIPAA Security Rule requires appropriate administrative, physical and technical safeguards to secure an individual’s electronic protected health information (ePHI).
