Topic Background:

The deadline for HIPAA Security Rule compliance for Covered Entities (CEs) was April 2005! For Business Associates (BAs), the date was February 2010… when they become statutorily obligated to comply with the law as a result of Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, which was enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009.

Additionally, the federal government unveiled its criteria for the Meaningful Use of electronic health records (EHRs) on July 13, 2010. The criteria must be met in order for a hospital or eligible provider (EP) to qualify for reimbursement of the cost of EHR software under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). The meaningful use criteria have been divided into two groups -- the core set, which is mandatory, and the menu set, from which hospitals and EPs may choose five of the 10 criteria. The mandatory core set includes a specific privacy / security requirement to “Protect electronic health information created or maintained by the certified EHR technology through the implementation of appropriate technical capabilities.” For both hospitals and EPs, the certification criteria is to “Conduct or review a security risk analysis and implement security updates as necessary.”
