    In early 2018, the Electronic Health Record Association (EHRA) convened a national Opioid Crisis Task Force to identify how Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and other health IT can play a role in providing solutions to one of the nation’s most pressing challenges. David Bucciferro, Senior Advisor of Foothold Technology, is a participant on the Opioid Crisis Task Force where he co-leads the Standards and Technology sub-group. This important group of stakeholders is examining ways health IT functionality can be better utilized as part of the larger solution to combat the opioid crisis in our country. In this session, David will share highlights from a recent panel discussion with congressional staff where the Task Force shared initial policy recommendations on ways to maximize the capacities of health IT in the fight against opioid abuse. We will also discuss how Opioid oversight will be implemented into Health IT, with Morphine Milligram Equivalent Calculators, Quality Measures, SCRIPT, FHIR, and other technologies.

    SPEAKING EVENT | HIPAA: Getting Under the Hood with Your EHR Vendor

    Event Date: Wednesday, 05/29/2019 12:00 am

    Date: Wednesday, May 29, 2019


    • Marlowe Greenberg, CEO, Foothold Technology

    In the behavioral health world, as information migrates from paper files into electronic systems, extra vigilance is required to maintain an infrastructure that keeps protected health information (PHI) safe. While the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has been around a long time and provides some guidance on keeping information confidential, life changed for Business Associates (BAs) in 2013 and 2014 with the implementation of HiTECH Act and the HHS’ Risk Assessment Tool. For Foothold Technology, an Electronic Health Record (EHR) vendor supporting over 1000 agencies nationwide, it meant the company would also be treated as a covered entity along with its customers, primarily behavioral health providers and agencies supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Foothold Technology has extended great efforts into making AWARDS, its EHR, one of the most secure in the behavioral health world. In this session, CEO Marlowe Greenberg will outline steps his company took to help educate its customers about the responsibility of safeguarding client data and maintaining HIPAA compliance, as well as share tips for other BAs based on the ongoing efforts his company is taking to secure its own internal processes, ensure the safeguarding of customers’ data, and minimize risk.
