Frequently Asked Questions

Question: How long will it take me to complete the HIPAA Risk Assessment?
Answer: This depends heavily on the maturity of your compliance programs. We recommend completing the assessment in small increments of time, devoting about 4 hours per month to working on it. After you’ve completed the first round of the HIPAA risk assessment, your completion time will decrease to about 2 hours per month.

Question: How should I get started on the risk assessment?
Answer: The HIPAA Check is designed to help you prioritize the highest risks to PHI. We recommend filtering out the highest risk items and working through those first; then, move on to the medium risk items. The HIPAA Check instructions will walk you through the process for breaking the assessment into smaller, more manageable activities.

Question: Is the HIPAA Check complicated? Do I need to download anything?
Answer: The HIPAA Check and the policies are easy to use. You will receive simple instructions and video resources to get started, and you’ll only have to download the tool one time.

Question: Do I need to be a HIPAA expert to complete the risk assessment?
Answer: No. The HIPAA Check lays out all the HIPAA requirements and how to assess your risk. In fact, when you are done with the assessment, you will probably know much more about HIPAA than you do now. The instructions also explain terms found in the law.
