Welcome to Papaya, Let's Tackle your Annual HIPAA Risk Assessment

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) mandates covered entities and business associates handling protected health information (PHI), to conduct an annual risk analysis as part of their security management processes (45 C.F.R. § 164.308(a)(1)(ii)(A)).

By conducting a robust, annual risk assessment using Papaya, organizations can identify, address, and manage potential security risks, thus ensuring compliance with HIPAA’s Administrative and Technical Safeguards while enhancing the overall security of their PHI.
