The Past Couple of Weeks: Michigan, Ohio, Illinois and Wisconsin (and 2500 miles!!)

I began last week traveling to the MACMHB conference in beautiful Traverse City, Michigan.  Fall time in Michigan is phenomenal!  Here are a couple of photos I took while there:

I then had the opportunity to attend the OPRA conference in Columbus, OH.  I talked with many providers throughout the state about solutions Therap can provide.

Headed to the conference!

Have a great weekend!

Need help filling out the Security Risk Assessment (SRA) tool?

Therap has a video that is hot off the press to assist you to fill out your Security Risk Assessment.  Click below to view this video:

You can also find this video on Therap’s home page.

Here is more information regarding the Security Risk Assessment from the HHS website:

A new security risk assessment (SRA) tool to help guide health care providers in small to medium sized offices conduct risk assessments of their organizations is now available from HHS.

The SRA tool is the result of a collaborative effort by the HHS Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) and Office for Civil Rights (OCR). The tool is designed to help practices conduct and document a risk assessment in a thorough, organized fashion at their own pace by allowing them to assess the information security risks in their organizations under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security Rule. The application, available for downloading at www.HealthIT.gov/security-risk-assessmentalso produces a report that can be provided to auditors.

HIPAA requires organizations that handle protected health information to regularly review the administrative, physical and technical safeguards they have in place to protect the security of the information. By conducting these risk assessments, health care providers can uncover potential weaknesses in their security policies, processes and systems.  Risk assessments also help providers address vulnerabilities, potentially preventing health data breaches or other adverse security events. A vigorous risk assessment process supports improved security of patient health data.

Conducting a security risk assessment is a key requirement of the HIPAA Security Rule and a core requirement for providers seeking payment through the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, commonly known as the Meaningful Use Program.

“Protecting patients’ protected health information is important to all health care providers and the new tool we are releasing today will help them assess the security of their organizations,” said Karen DeSalvo, M.D., national coordinator for health information technology. “The SRA tool and its additional resources have been designed to help health care providers conduct a risk assessment to support better security for patient health data.”

“We are pleased to have collaborated with the ONC on this project,” said Susan McAndrew, deputy director of OCR’s Division of Health Information Privacy. “We believe this tool will greatly assist providers in performing a risk assessment to meet their obligations under the HIPAA Security Rule.”

The SRA tool’s website contains a User Guide and Tutorial video to help providers begin using the tool. Videos on risk analysis and contingency planning are available at the website to provide further context.

The tool is available for both Windows operating systems and iOS iPads. Download the Windows version athttp://www.HealthIT.gov/security-risk-assessment. The iOS iPad version is available from the Apple App Store(search under “HHS SRA tool”).

Thanks!

Michelle :)
