Information Blocking Assessment

Understand the Rule and share confidently.

Overview

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.

Tom Gordon

CIO, Virtua

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.

CynergisTek’s social engineering and phishing service was an excellent training tool for our organization. A third-party assessment of how our policies and procedures would stack up against a real threat was eye-opening and provided us with valuable information we can leverage to continue to enhance our security posture.
