The Information Blocking Rule requires certain organizations to share specific health information seamlessly. It is important for healthcare providers to understand how these rules may impact them and what is necessary to comply with the Rule.
The Information Blocking Assessment is designed to evaluate whether your organization appropriately considered the applicability of the regulation, identified where the data elements included in the USCDI are located, reviewed information access policies and procedures, reviewed contracts with vendors, and appropriately apply exceptions.
Having a partner that is actively monitoring our systems, trends, local and global threats not only saves the Virtua IT Security team time, but provides us with the ability to proactively look at potential threats to plan accordingly. The partnership with CynergisTek has allowed us to focus on compliance, developing risk programs, policy and procedures leading to a culture focused on making us more secure.
Security has become a necessary and critical strategic pillar for our organization, and it is too broad and complex for a provider organization to keep up with on their own. Having a partner like CynergisTek with depth and breadth of knowledge and expertise is a crucial asset for our organization. I can’t imagine navigating these issues without them.
