Here's one of the first things HIPAA auditors will ask you:
"Have you completed a risk assessment?"
"Did that assessment include medical devices that store, generate and transmit ePHI?"
If not, you're in violation of the HIPAA Security Rule, and at risk of losing your Meaningful Use Funds.
At the most basic level, federal mandates require healthcare providers to complete a thorough risk assessment — one that identifies every place in your facility where ePHI resides.
Besides fulfilling both HIPAA Security Rule and Meaningful Use requirements, a thorough risk assessment is also your best and most cost-effective way to prevent medical devices from misfiring, impairing patient data and other devices connected to your network.
That's where eProtex comes in.
