Ever long for a concise checklist to help you with risk management as you move toward meaningful use of your electronic health record (EHR)? Are you trying to decide between office-based and Internet-based EHR options?
A new guide presented by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) will help you overcome the challenges of privacy and security as you move toward achieving meaningful use and earning those incentive dollars.
Recent headlines about practices being fined thousands of dollars for violating HIPAA rules may be motivating you to further protect your clinical practice and your patients. You also likely are aware of the need for trust in the patient relationship, which makes patients more willing to discuss symptoms, conditions and possibly risky behaviors.
Good reasons for increased attention to privacy and security aren’t hard to find, but time to develop an action plan may be. That’s where the new ONC guide – available online free – can be just the resource you need.
