If your medical office or practice uses HIPAA-compliant, certified electronic health records (EHR) and accepts Medicare or Medicaid billing, the Meaningful Use program offers significant rewards for successful EHR implementation—and sizable penalties for failure to comply. You may think you’ve taken all the necessary precautions to keep your data safe, but unless you’ve talked to an unbiased expert, can you really be sure?
If you have installed HIPAA compliant system and have a data security policy in place, you probably feel like you’re doing all you can to protect your patients and your practice. That still might not be enough.
Implementing a Meaningful Use certified system is just one step in the process. In order to meet the HIPAA Meaningful Use requirements, your organization must conduct a Security Risk Assessment. We can tell you if your defences hold up—or are holding you back from the Medicare and Medicaid payment incentives you deserve.
Our consultants have over 20 years of experience identifying, evaluating and remediating compliance and data security risks. We know exactly what HIPAA Meaningful Use Security Risk Assessments require. We take the time to get to know you and your organization, and we create a comprehensive map of your defences and of your data flow using the most up-to-date National Institute Standards and Technology (NIST) Framework. We pinpoint your vulnerabilities and we provide a smart, straightforward plan to achieve sustainable, HIPAA and PCI-compliant data security, and we stand by you and our work in the event of a security breach.
