Security Risk Analysis (SRA)

Successfully Avoid Fines and Audit Failures

Doctors and Dentists across the country are being audited and are failing at an alarming rate of 24% and a common cause of failure is due to issues relating to the practice's Security Risk Analysis. If your practice has not yet been chosen for an EHR Meaningful Use audit, chances are it will be in 2015.

What is a Security Risk Analysis?

A Security Risk Analysis ("SRA") is part of Code Section 45 CFR 164.308 and ensures that all medical and dental practices participating in the EHR Incentive Program are abiding by HIPAA privacy and security rules. This mandate includes safety measures ranging from the direction your computer screens face to how you lock and secure your office at night. Starting with basic privacy information, a HIPAA SRA also looks into a practice’s IT system and the security of patient information.

Why do I have to do a Security Risk Analysis?

A proper SRA is not soley intended to ensure a practice has the correct privacy systems in place. Rather, CMS wants to ensure that medial providers and their staff are properly trained and are following Meaningful Use standards as well as HIPAA guidelines from a privacy and technology perspective. This is a requirement for all medical and dental professionals regardless of whether or not you participate in the EHR Incentive Program. It is important to remember that the SRA requirement is a HIPAA mandate that must to be met at least annually or as circumstances dictate.
