UPGRADED ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORD
Recently the Counseling Center upgraded our Electronic Health Record (EHR). This will assist us to better meet patient needs and prepare for billing and coding changes coming this January with the implementation of Behavioral Health Redesign and eventually Medicaid Managed Care. The new EHR will also allow remote access to patient information and on-site documentation which is particularly helpful in a crisis situation or when working with other healthcare providers.
As part of our research into security of electronic records and remote access to patient information, some very interesting data was discovered. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reports that as of February 1, 2016 over 113,000,000 individuals have had their health infor-mation compromised. The number one source of breached patient information is from hacking net-work servers, number two is hacking directly into electronic health records and third most common source of breached information was emails. Hacking accounted for 98.72% of all breached health information. Below is a chart of the types of PHI breaches from 2013-2015.
