MEANINGFUL USE & HIPAA SECURITY RULE
While all healthcare organizations have been made aware of both Meaningful Use & HIPAA Security Rule concerns, not all have been able to successfully address these issues to date. Others may be in compliance with current rules, but need help moving forward with upcoming requirements for the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs associated with Meaningful Use requirements.

HIPAA SECURITY RULE COMPLIANCE
The HIPAA act specified national security standards designed to safeguard Electronic Personal Health Information (e-PHI). The Security Rule requires appropriate administrative, physical and technical safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information.
Our team can help ensure your HIPAA compliance, especially with regard to the following areas of the HIPPA Security Rule:
• Security Assessment, Risk Analysis & Measurement: determination of which security measures are reasonable and appropriate, as well as taking appropriate security measures to address identified risks
• Administrative Safeguards: creating & implementing appropriate safeguards, especially in the area of information access management, as well performing required evaluations of security policies and procedures.
• Physical Safeguards: developing proper controls to limit physical and digital access to e-PHI both onsite at facilities and on desktop workstations, as well as mobile devices.
• Technical Safeguards: including limiting e-PHI access to authorized individuals, implementing hardware and/or software for audit controls and securing transfers of e-PHI over electronic networks
