Frank Carsonie, Chair of our Health Care Practice Group, co-authored the article Reducing Risk in the Electronic Implementation of Electronic Records Systems: Practical Considerations and Benefits of a Risk Assessment in the March 2012 issue of HIT News published by the American Health Lawyer’s Association. Frank co-authorized the article with John DiMaggio, CEO of MCS2 Solutions, a veteran in the area of health care information technology solutions and privacy and security protections. The article provides a road map for organizations considering risk assessments for compliance with HIPAA and discusses some of the more common obstacles to completing a meaningful risk assessment and fully deploying a risk management plan.
