Mac McMillan, CEO of Cynergistek, offers some great insight into why organizations should make sure they’re on top of HIPAA today and where they can start.
The above video is just a portion of the full HIPAA Privacy and Security interview I did with Mac. He has a lot of great insight into what’s happening with HIPAA and HIPAA audits.
I also love his comment to encrypt your devices. How is it possible that hospital organizations haven’t heard this and dealt with it already? The other no brainer is to do a proper HIPAA risk assessment. Meaningful Use has pushed this forward in many organizations. Although, I think it’s fair to say that many haven’t done a “proper” risk assessment.
