EHR Security Risk Analysis

Medical Incentive Technologies LLC can provide a detailed, written Security Risk Analysis for medical practices and hospitals in fulfillment of the Medicare Meaningful Use Quality Measure to "Protect Electronic Health Information Created or Maintained by the Certified EHR Technology" in accordance with HIPAA standards [CFR 164.308(a)(1)].

Subject Matter

Our analysis includes the following areas.

  • § 164.308 Administrative Safeguards
  • § 164.310 Physical Safeguards
  • § 164.312 Technical Safeguards
  • Summary of Measures Implemented in Conjunction with the Analysis
  • Identification of Measures for Future Resolution

How It's Done

Our consultants partner with your medical practice and your information technology team to both educate and document security measures you have in place now. Where additional measures are called for, we help you prioritize required and addressable areas for future implementation projects.

CMS Audits

CMS has begun to audit Meaningful Use attestations and in particular, ask for a written copy of the EP or hospital's Security Risk Analysis. When such documentation is unsatisfactory, CMS may 'claw back' incentive payments and impose fines.

Additional Information

Medical Incentive Technologies LLC consultants have helped physician practices to enhance security and HIPAA compliance for over ten years. Our approach includes not just technology but also addresses the organizational culture issues related to security.
