Please join us for a presentation on electronic health record security and "meaningful use stage 2" presented by StrongAuth CTO and ISCer Arshad Noor. A dial-in will be provided the day before the program.


The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published its Final Rule on "meaningful use of certified electronic health record technology" (CEHRT) in 2012 as part of its EHR Incentive Program Stage 2. The Final Rule has specific mandates for the security of the EHRs: specifically, the use of digital signatures, encryption and protocols that imply specific behavior on the part of systems participating in the "transition of care" (TOC) between eligible professionals, eligible hospitals and other institutions in the healthcare field.

This talk will highlight the requirements of "meaningful use - stage 2" and specifically, the security requirements of systems dealing with electronic health records. Depending on the role of the participant in the EHR ecosystem, potential solution approaches will be discussed along with their pros and cons.
