To guard against modifications or corruption to EPHI data
OSU will implement electronic mechanisms to corroborate that electronic protected health information has not been altered or destroyed in an unauthorized manner. §164.312(c)(2)Each CHS employee is to know how to safely and securely handle and access EPHI. Each software system must have a mechanism to verify data integrity of electronically transmitted EPHI.
OSU will utilize the security options of its various systems to lock down the user’s ability to erroneously change or modify in any way. Outside of legitimate changes, the Audit logs will be used to track unwarranted changes to patient’s records.
