The Department of Health and Human Services has announced the availability of a new security risk assessment (SRA) tool to help providers in small to medium sized physician offices conduct risk assessments to aid in complying with HIPAA requirements for securing protected health information.

Available for both Windows operating systems and iOS iPads, the SRA tool developed by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT and Office for Civil Rights is meant to help practices conduct and document a risk assessment. The assessment is a key requirement of the HIPAA Security Rule and a core requirement for providers seeking payment through the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs. The tool also creates a report that can be provided to auditors.
