Meaningful use stage 2 and hipaa compliance

  1. 1. Meaningful Use Stage 2 is designed to help patient’s access their medical records using electronic methods while maintaining patient privacy and adhering to the other guidelines set by HIPAA rules and regulations. For instance, Meaningful Use Stage 2 requires medical professionals to integrate educational information into appointments to improve overall patient care. Using HIPAA compliance software can help your business reach these goals and all others outlined by the Meaningful Use Stage 2 guidelines. Electronic Patient Health Information One of the goals of recent HIPAA changes is to make healthcare information more accessible using electronic patient health information records. Electronic patient health information, or ePHI, must be used according to HIPAA guidelines. Organizations and entities that reach Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements will be eligible for incentives. Many of the core requirements for Meaningful Use Stage 1 are incorporated into Meaningful Use Stage 2, but organizations will be expected to submit more information electronically under the Stage 2 requirements. In order to get incentives under the Meaningful Use Stage 2 rules, organizations will also need to emphasize using electronic patient records rather than traditional paper documents. Electronic patient health information should be available to patients within a short time after the information is requested. Organizations and entities will need to maintain a high standard for secure patient information disclosures and should require written consent before sharing electronic health information with other organizations or entities. Informing patients about their care and providing information to state and federal health organizations is also important in reaching compliance with Stage 2. Educational and Statistical Information The use of approved HIPAA compliance software is vital for organizations and entities. HIPAA compliance software provides organizations with the opportunity to provide proof of compliance with Meaningful Use Stage 2 when the software is also HIPAA compliant. Records are just one aspect of HIPAA compliance. Under Meaningful Use Stage 2, physicians and other healthcare professionals must provide patients with information regarding their own health to improve the effectiveness of treatment.

  2. 2. Use Stage 3, which is the last step toward improving overall patient care and outcomes. Giving patients the ability to view or download their own health records is a big step toward improving the accessibility of records when patients visit other clinics or hospitals. Organizations such as hospitals will also need to comply with a specific set of guidelines when working toward reaching Meaningful Use Stage 2 compliance. HIPAA compliance software can be used in a wide range of settings to assist your organization in reaching compliance with less frustration. Hospitals, clinics and even insurance companies must use HIPAA complaint software in order to maintain ePHI and share it appropriately in order to receive the incentives offered.
