Essential concepts for protecting ePHI in an emergency are covered throughout the template. These include: identifying critical business processes, developing contingency plans and strategies with cloud backups, utilizing secure remote access protocols, creating policies around communication and data internal control measures, and providing training programs so that all staff are informed on effective responses.
