Frequently Asked Questions
The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) recognizes that conducting a risk assessment can be a challenging task. That’s why ONC, in collaboration with the HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and the HHS Office of the General Counsel (OGC), developed a downloadable SRA Tool (69 MB) to help guide you through the process. This tool is not required by the HIPAA Security Rule, but is meant to assist providers and professionals as they perform a risk assessment.
We understand that users with Windows 8.1 Operating Systems may experience difficulties downloading the SRA Tool, we are working to resolve the issue and will post here when a resolution is identified and implemented.
The SRA Tool is a self-contained, operating system (OS) independent application that can be run on various environments including Windows OS’s for desktop and laptop computers and Apple’s iOS for iPad only. The iOS SRA Tool application for iPad, available at no cost, can be downloaded from Apple’s App StoreWeb Site Disclaimers.
The SRA Tool takes you through each HIPAA requirement by presenting a question about your organization’s activities. Your “yes” or “no” answer will show you if you need to take corrective action for that particular item. There are a total of 156 questions.
Resources are included with each question to help you:
- Understand the context of the question
- Consider the potential impacts to your PHI if the requirement is not met
- See the actual safeguard language of the HIPAA Security Rule
You can document your answers, comments, and risk remediation plans directly into the SRA Tool. The tool serves as your local repository for the information and does not send your data anywhere else.
Completing a risk assessment requires a time investment. At any time during the risk assessment process, you can pause to view your current results. The results are available in a color-coded graphic view (Windows version only) or in printable PDF and Excel formats.
