Boxford, MA (PRWEB) April 15, 2013
Iatric Systems, Inc., a comprehensive healthcare IT integration company, announced today that its patient privacy monitoring solution, Security Audit Manager (SAM) version 5.1, is compliant with the ONC 2014 Edition criteria and was certified as an EHR Module on April 3, 2013 by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ACB, in accordance with the applicable Eligible Provider and Hospital certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The ONC 2014 Edition criteria support both Stage 1 and 2 meaningful use measures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
Frank Fortner, President of Iatric Systems, said, “Iatric Systems is pleased to add Security Audit Manager to its 15 products that are certified to support Meaningful Use. Security Audit Manager provides healthcare organizations with one certified solution that handles all patient privacy auditing and incident risk management. Having a fully automated solution to monitor patient privacy across the entire health system, with diverse software applications, is crucial. We are pleased that SAM continues to help healthcare organizations comply with HIPAA patient privacy regulations by being 2014 ONC HIT certified, and is ready to adapt to new regulations like the Omnibus Rule.”
The HIPAA Omnibus Rule took effect March 26, and enforcement starts on September 23, 2013. A critical provision of HIPAA Omnibus that healthcare organizations need to tackle is modifying their breach assessment and notification procedures. Security Audit Manager provides capabilities to automate, document, and notify based on the new HIPAA Omnibus Rule 4-step risk assessment and notification requirements.
