Electronic Health Record (EHR) Transition – HCOs are responsible for maintaining patient records under a variety of state, federal, and professional requirements. Most HCOs transitioning from an existing EHR face a daunting array of technical, strategic, and tactical challenges to assure that patient records are preserved and that the HCO has met HIPAA Security responsibilities.
