Security Risk Assessment

A Security Risk Assessment (SRA) is a standard annual requirement for all eligible health care entities due to HIPAA Meaningful Use requirements. The Merit-Based Incentive Payment System, used for Medicare/Medicaid payment processing for healthcare entities, requires SRAs to be performed in order to receive the best possible service reimbursement rates. SRA's are required for all providers, large or small, and can be complex and time-consuming. Yeo & Yeo provides this service directly as a reduced cost.

Our approach to SRA's are less invasive and require minimum assistance from your staff. We provide you with a comprehensive report including all compliance documents as well as a detailed review of your report that outlines what your risk factors and next steps are.

What is a Security Risk Assessment?

Yeo & Yeo's SRA is divided into two main components:

  1. Risk Analysis is performed by conducting an accurate and thorough assessment of the potential risks and vulnerabilities to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic patient health information (ePHI) held by a covered healthcare entity or business associate.
  2. Risk Management is performed by implementing security measures sufficient to reduce risks and vulnerabilities to a reasonable and appropriate level to comply to HIPAA requirements. YYCC will provide both required points of an SRA with minimal impact on the health care entity’s office and personnel.
