Security Risk Analysis: What You Need to Know Now

Posted by Jodie Jackson, Jr. on Oct 26, 2017 9:02:00 AM

Theft and unauthorized transfer of medical records is a lucrative criminal enterprise, and reported data breaches have resulted in severe financial loss. A Security Risk Analysis (SRA) is one of the most effective methods to avoid these incidents. In addition, an SRA is an impotant first step in complying with security rules established by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).

The need for an SRA has taken on an extra measure of significance, because it is required for all eligible clinicians (ECs) who use Electronic Health Record (EHR) technology, the same standard required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to meet Meaningful Use requirements. The mandatory SRA falls under the Advancing Care Information (ACI) category of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).

Primaris has created a new reference sheet to more fully explain the SRA and how we can help eligible clinicians and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) meet the requirement.
