Medical practices adopting EHRs must demonstrate that patient health information is secure according a Department of Health and Human Services rule published in July 2010. That rule, which set requirements for providers receiving EHR Incentive Payments, established two sets of objectives –15 core objectives and 10 menu objectives, from which providers chose five. The security of patient health information is a core or required objective, specifically, providers must conduct a Security Risk Analysis or if already done, have risk management in place specific to the new risks associated with an EHR.
