NASHVILLE, TN, USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE™ -- AUGUST 3, 2021: Join Roger Severino, described as the longest tenured and most transformational Office for Civil Rights (OCR) Director in the agency’s history and now a Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, and Bob Chaput, Clearwater Executive Chairman, in an interactive presentation and discussion of the regulatory, legal, social, and ethical importance of OCR-Quality® Risk Analysis and Risk Management.

OCR issued "Guidance on Risk Analysis Requirements under the HIPAA Security Rule" in July 2010. Yet, healthcare entities struggle to perform this foundational compliance requirement, critical cyber risk management step and socially responsible action. Phase I and II HIPAA audits and over 100 OCR enforcement actions continue to show that nearly 90% of healthcare organizations failed to meet the HIPAA Risk Analysis requirement around 80% of these organizations failed to meet the HIPAA Risk Management requirement.

Learn the root causes of these adverse findings and, more importantly, learn exactly what OCR expects in your HIPAA risk analysis and risk management plans.

This live web event is designed to help covered entities and business associates understand and act on the specific Risk Analysis and Risk Management requirements included in the HIPAA Security Rule.
