WEDI Issues New HIPAA Security White Paper

On August 3, 2004 WEDI (Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange) issued a new HIPAA Security Rule risk analysis white paper and a corresponding power point presentation.

The white paper issued addresses the final Security Rule requirement that all HIPAA "covered entities" perform a security "risk analysis." The white paper discusses solutions various covered entities can consider adopting to meet the requirement to complete a risk analysis. In order to begin the Risk Analysis process, one must first review the final Security Rule in general and its guidance regarding HIPAA security implementation.
