Cyber attacks are increasingly targeting the sensitive health information that is maintained by health care providers. The need for healthcare organizations to evaluate and then deploy an effective health data security plan has never been greater. In fact, conducting a security risk analysis is apart of the HIPAA Security Rule.
Entities covered by HIPAA must implement strong data security safeguards in their environments, and in particular, comply with the HIPAA Security Rule to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all of the electronic protected health information (ePHI) they create, receive, maintain or transmit.
Etactics, Inc. is pleased to announce it's partnership with InfoGPS Networks, Inc. and Paul Hugenberg's team to provide our clients with the very best in GRC solutions.
Our ACCESS Program includes all of the requirements that physicians must meet to receive their incentives and avoid any penalties. In this program, physicians must meet eight overall objectives, in contrast to the earlier requirement for them to choose from a core menu of options.
Etactics, Inc. and InfoGPS Networks, Inc. have created the ACCESS Program, to assist with addressing all of the requirements under the HIPAA Security Rule. Physicians will be able to attest to conducting a security risk analysis and audits to assess vulnerabilities to ePHI and meeting those requirements attached to meaningful use and their associated objectives in order to receive incentives.
