Oracle has introduced a tool that it says will help healthcare organizations with proactive detection and prevention of security and privacy breaches.

Unveiled Tuesday at Oracle's OpenWorld conference in San Francisco, the Oracle Security Governor for Healthcare is a component of the Oracle Health Management Platform and is the first integrated, out-of-the-box security governance solution specialized for the needs of healthcare organizations, the company said.

Oracle Security Governor provides both retrospective fraud detection and real-time fraud prevention to help healthcare organizations identify and stop malicious activity immediately. It integrates with online and offline resources to improve system and organizational learning and helps build a comprehensive security profile.

"The transformation of the healthcare IT infrastructure, with the aim of involving consumers, physicians, payers, employers, and government as never before, has created unique business challenges concerning security and privacy," Rohit Gupta, Oracle VP of identity management, said in a statement.

Leveraging the foundation of Oracle Identity Management 11g as well as Oracle Data Mining and Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle Security Governor offers risk-monitoring capabilities such as analytics and reporting to provide greater visibility into data and application access and suspicious insider activity, helping customers meet regulatory compliance needs.

The company said Oracle Security Governor has specific capabilities that will help healthcare IT managers improve their security efforts including:

-- Historical privacy and security breach detection provides audit trails and identification of suspicious activities related to access, privacy, fraud, and security breaches that have taken place in the past.

-- Real-time privacy and security breach detection and prevention monitors suspicious and fraudulent activity, such as medical theft or insider snooping on confidential and sensitive information, in real time.

-- Rapid incident investigation offers criteria-based automated reporting functionality that allows fast incident detection and workflow.

-- Automated privacy audits examine activities of various entities and applications and report suspicious activities so the organization can monitor and manage privacy.

-- Customizable risk analytics and reporting provides healthcare organizations with information to meet demanding security and compliance programs.

"With Oracle Security Governor, healthcare organizations can now have the first complete solution to audit and manage security in real time that helps prevent fraudulent operations and protect their clients' privacy, while still meeting compliance requirements," Gupta said.
