Many medical practices mistakenly
believe that their EMR vendor is taking care of
the requirements of MU Measure 15. This is simply
not true. In fact, it's not possible for an EMR
vendor to take care of MU 15 because the measure
requires more than what an EMR vendor can do.
Most importantly, your EMR vendor cannot supply
an analysis of your overall risk nor can they
identify security deficiencies because these things
require an analysis of overall practice policies.
This analysis is a collective effort with the
burden being upon the medical practice to determine
security risks and document the policies that
support the effort to mitigate risk.
An EMR vendor cannot define
your policies or create your procedures. Once
you mitigate risk through an assessment (which
your EMR vendor is not responsible for conducting
- you are), then your policies must be created.
While it is not impossible
for a medical practice to conduct their own Security
Risk Assessment, most medical practices simply
do not have the resources available or cannot
find the time to come up to speed with all of
the requirements to conduct a comprehensive Meaningful
Use Security Risk Assessment.

the specialized tasks that come with performing
a complete and compliant risk assessment analysis,
