OIG Recommends Fraud Safeguards in Hospital EHR Technology
Audit functions were available but weren't being used.
On December 10, 2013, the OIG for the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services released a report announcing that hospital implementation of fraud safeguards in EHRs fell short of the recommended standards. This report was based on four fraud safeguards in which the OIG criticized CMS and ONC for not incorporating these safeguards into their electronic health records certification standards. Read this white paper for details on that report and the steps that are being taken going forward.
