• What are HIPAA and EPHI?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security Rule mandates that covered entities and business associates evaluate healthcare organizations’ risks. Your organization can ensure it complies with HIPAA’s administrative, physical, and technical safeguards by conducting a risk assessment. Risk analysis also aids in identifying potential threats to the protected health information (PHI) of your firm.

  • HIPAA Security Risk Assessment by Alliant Billing Solutions

The HIPAA security risk assessment is a renowned term in the medical billing industry. It is a mandatory requirement for the healthcare business to go for a yearly HIPAA Security Risk Assessment.

The HIPAA Security Rule mandates that business associates and covered entities, including health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and healthcare providers who electronically transmit any health information in connection with a HIPAA-related transaction, must implement security safeguards.

By ensuring security measures, we safeguard the confidentiality, integrity, and accessibility of electronic protected health information (ePHI).
