    The evaluation process consists of determining compliance (with SP.800-213A Capabilities) and assessing the level of risk (acceptable, correctable or unacceptable) a MIoT device presents to a healthcare organization’s IT environment. The process should also include evaluation with HIPAA/HITECH requirements for the protection of PHI. Compliance-with-Requirement should be completed by either the MIoT device manufacturer or vendor on behalf of the healthcare provider considering its use. An assessment can be completed by the healthcare provider but may be inaccurate—through no fault of the healthcare provider--unless supporting or corroborating evidence (or documentation) is provided by manufacturer or vendor.
