The basic provisions of privacy for protected health information are well known, but their application in today’s world of electronic and personal communication devices is complex.  On-going training and education of the health care workforce is a necessary requirement to comply with HIPAA. That on-going training and education involves the performance and completion of a Risk Assessment under HIPAA rules in order to gauge and evaluate the vulnerability to HIPAA violations of any given health care covered entity. Performing a proper Risk Assessment will hopefully uncover vulnerabilities that the covered entity will correct.  But what if there is a breach, nonetheless?  What can be done or shown to demonstrate one’s good-faith efforts to comply?
