Assessment Tool for Electronic Health Record Security: Guidance for Low-Resource Settings Abstract:

The Assessment Tool for Electronic Health Record Security: Guidance for Low-Resource Settings was developed to help ministries of health, implementing partners, software developers, donors, and other stakeholders examine the security of electronic health record (EHR) systems. Designed using internationally accepted best practices, the assessment approach is tailored to the needs of low-resource settings. The guidance takes into consideration typical EHR implementation scenarios, such as a single instance of an EHR being used for retrospective data entry, while also allowing users to continue to assess security as their EHR systems mature to interconnected point-of-care systems. This document provides instructions on the use of several tools to assess EHR system privacy and security and for instituting continuous monitoring of EHR privacy and security.
