Confused about your Risk/Gap Analysis for “Meaningful Use”?

Do you have your Risk/Gap Analysis completed for your practice, which is required to achieve “Meaningful Use” for the CMS EHR Incentive Program? The Risk Analysis provided by Healthcare Compliance Pros is the same as is required for Meaningful Use by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

A Risk/Gap Analysis, as required under the HIPAA Security Rule, is a critical and foundational component of an effective risk management process that helps covered entities, and their business associates, to perform their mission and protect the health information entrusted to them. It is also a requirement for achieving “Meaningful Use” for the CMS EHR Incentive Program.

Many practices avoid completing their risk analyses due to the complexity involved with it. However, HCP has developed a simple, straight-forward program to complete these analyses. You can find your Risk/Gap Analysis in your HIPAA Security Training and in your HIPAA Security Policies and Procedures from HCP. You can customize it to fit your needs. Most importantly, once completed, you now have met this portion of the “Meaningful Use” requirement. If you have any questions, please contact us by phone or email. Your questions are always welcome.
