Privacy and security issues are core measures within the meaningful use requirements—REACH resources can help you comply. In addition to access to subject matter experts, REACH clients get access to a self-study "eBox" which provides comprehensive training so your staff understands privacy and security issues in general and the specifics for completing the mandated privacy and security audit. The eBox gives you step-by-step instructions, check lists, templates and other tools to ensure you can save money by completing the assessment yourself, without the expense of additional consultants.
"It's your one-stop-shop for HIPAA Privacy and HIPAA Security. Everything I required and more was right at my fingertips. It saved me time since I didn't have to create all of my own policies. The samples that were provided were more than adequate," commented Heidi Engle, chief information officer at Glacial Ridge Health System.
The Privacy and Security eBox was developed by the College of St. Scholastica, a Key Health Alliance partner.
