Health IT — Meaningful Use

Security breaches can leave providers and practice administrators personally liable, facing monetary fines and jail time if they knowingly fail to protect the privacy of electronic patient health information. Purdue Healthcare Advisors manages the Purdue Regional Extension Center, which is one of 62 centers across the country charged by the federal government with conducting security risk assessments as part of its mission to guide providers to Meaningful Use of electronic health records systems.

PHA’s IT specialists consult, educate/train, and guide IT departments with in-house projects and conduct in-depth assessments in preparation for both HIPAA and Meaningful Use audits. We work onsite, interviewing key staff, conducting physical walkthroughs of facilities, and performing the reviews, scans, and assessments necessary to create a realistic security and privacy remediation plan.
