Risk Mitigation

The Final Rule requires that “A covered entity must, in accordance with 45 C.F.R. §164.530(f)(1), mitigate, to the extent practicable, any harmful effect that is known to the covered entity of a use or disclosure of protected health information in violation of its policies and procedures or the requirements of this subpart by the covered entity or its business associate”.

Risk Mitigation Report

Allstate IT Solutions will prepare a Risk Mitigation Report that outlines a plan to reduce potential threats to ePHI and Practice Information Systems. The mitigation plan will consist of a systematic approach to implement security controls discovered to be lacking during the Security Risk Analysis.

The mitigation plan will be comprehensive.  Allstate IT Solutions understands it may not be reasonable and appropriate for the Practice to implement each and every identified security control at once due to hardship. Therefore the report will identify the priority in which corrective actions should be implemented to most effectively reduce risk.
