One of the requirements of receiving the federal incentive payments for having Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems is to have an annual risk assessment. The risk assessment evaluates a practices policies, procedures, technology and facilities to identify areas of threat to the EHR system. Most people automatically think of the threat of hackers to the data, but other risks are important to understand as well. A well structured Risk Assessment will identify risk areas and provide suggestions for reducing the risk.
