How are you doing on HIPAA security? April 21, 2005 is less than a year away, after all. If you're like most everyone else, you're not doing very well. According to a new survey by URAC (which was the Utilization Review Accreditation Commission or something like that), few providers have done much to make progress toward HIPAA security compliance.

Remember, just as with HIPAA privacy, the only way you'll get close to compliance is if you start figuring out where you are, where you need to go, and how you get there. So get working on your organization's risk analysis. Check with your IT or IS folks, your hardware and software vendors, and your consultants and lawyers. No time like the present.
