Jericho Systems Releases White Paper on Using EnterSpace ExchangeTM to Achieve Meaningful Use of Electronic Health Records
Jericho Systems Corporation, a developer of dynamic access control software for large enterprises, announced release of a new white paper: “Achieving Meaningful Use Objectives with EnterSpace Exchange.” Under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, healthcare providers who achieve “Meaningful Use” (MU)” of electronic health record (EHR) technology within a specified timeframe can qualify for financial incentives from federal Medicare and state Medicaid agencies.
The 16-page white paper, available free on request from www.jerichosystems.com, details how the intuitive workflows and interoperable technology of EnterSpace Exchange can control the flow of EHR data between organizations and be used to implement data segmentation, data redaction, computable policies, and patient consent directives in compliance with objectives and core quality measures of MU.
“Penalties begin in 2015 for Medicare eligible professionals who do not comply with program requirements,” said David Staggs, CTO of Jericho Systems. “Our white paper shows how EnterSpace Exchange's innovative data security and privacy features can help meet meaningful use requirements while automating the ability to share and protect sensitive health data.”
This white paper addresses relevant issues for healthcare IT decision makers, such as:
  • Healthcare data security risks and breaches of patient privacy.
  • How computable policies and rules enable fine-grained data access control over data transmitted using eHealth Exchange CONNECT and Aurion.
  • Specific goals of MU supported by policy based access control (PBAC) and attribute based access control (ABAC), including privacy, sharing of summary of care records, and more.
  • Compatibility with standards from Health Level Seven International (HL7), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS), and other organizations.
“EnterSpace Exchange has been a proven choice for data privacy and security research conducted at multiple federal agencies,” said Brynn Mow CEO. “It’s an excellent option for healthcare enterprises and organizations ready to leverage IT infrastructure investments and tighten control over sensitive data.”
