Security Risk Analysis

The HIPAA Security Rule requires covered entities to conduct an annual risk assessment of their health care organization. Electronic protected health information is critical to your business and vital to the care of your patients. Conducting a security risk analysis (SRA) will help identify areas where protected health information (PHI) could be at risk. Our services can:

  • Align your policies and procedures with HIPAA standards
  • Identify and document potential threats, vulnerabilities and possible impact to your operations
  • Provide guidance on documenting corrective actions needed to mitigate identified risks
  • Provide report findings and supporting documentation
  • Consult, educate and guide your staff on HIPAA best practices
  • Reduce your clinical staff burden

Accountable care organization practice transformation

Public and private insurance payers are implementing alternatives to fee-for-service payment, and practices are challenged to reinvent the way they do business in order to lower costs and improve quality of care. AFMC HealthIT assists providers making the transition to becoming accountable care organizations in the following ways:

  • Data-driven transformation strategies
  • Management of high-risk patients
  • Redesign of workflows
  • EHR optimization
  • Helping providers earn shared savings

Patient Engagement Satisfaction Survey

The 2016 Patient Engagement Satisfaction Survey Results shows answers from Arkansas’ medical providers and patients about their health care experiences and use of health information technology (HIT) such as electronic health records and patient portals.  AFMC and Arkansas Medicaid are working together to increase the use of HIT by the State’s Medicaid population.  As a National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Certified Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) Survey Vendor, AFMC collected answers from over 1,000 health care providers and over 6,500 Medicaid beneficiaries to complete the patient satisfaction survey.
