Resource Overview

The Office for Civil Right's new HIPAA random audit program is in effect and significantly increases enforcement procedures following breaches, Health Centers need to ensure that their organization is fully complying with HIPAA regulations while at the same time providing systems that meet modern health information sharing and communication requirements that allow for increaseed continuity of care.  

Health Centers will need the right privacy protections for health information, and the necessary documented policies and procedures per HIPAA regulations, as well as documentation of actions taken per the policies of their organization. The resources in this section provide best practices, strategies and templates for better understanding nuances of HIPAA regulations and how they pertain to a Health Center's specific setting.

Strategic Cybersecurity Breach Protection and Incident Response

Strategic Cybersecurity Breach Protection and Incident Response

Guidance and Resources for Health Centers

General cybersecurity guidance would suggest that Health IT breach should not be considered a matter of “if”, but rather a matter of “when”. How an organization prepares and responds to an episode of breach is just as important as defending itself from breach. Unfortunately, Health Centers are perceived as a domain with high potential for data breach, and consequently it is critical for Health Center leadership to embrace breach mitigation and incident response planning across their entire organization vs being a matter to be addressed by their Health IT team. Breach can occur through both internal and external network leaks, through malware such as ransomware and through physical means on site. This is Part 2 of the Health Center Defense Against the Dark Web presentation series. This presentation provides general knowledge about breach mitigation and planning strategies for incident response.
