PORTLAND, Ore. and BOXFORD, Mass., Feb. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Patient data moves through a hospital much the same way blood flows throughout the human body. However, patient data is measured in terabytes; is highly regulated; harder to protect because it resides in different applications and databases; and requires access by many caregivers and administrators. With terabytes of sensitive patient data in so many places, data security incidents happen in a heartbeat and can be hard to discover. Iatric Systems Inc., a comprehensive healthcare IT integration company, is integrating its Security Audit Manager (TM), a patient privacy monitoring and incident reporting solution, with ID Experts' RADAR®, incident response management software, to offer hospitals a complete, best-in-class solution for identifying, assessing, and managing security incidents, and complying with federal and state data breach notification laws.
Together: A Diagnostic Engine for Incident Monitoring and Response Management More than 900 healthcare organizations nationwide use Iatric Systems Security Audit Manager to monitor EHRs, audit patient records, and proactively detect security incidents. RADAR further expands the incidents from Security Audit Manager, performs a multi-factor incident risk assessment--electronic, paper or visual--and provides guidance on whether the incident is a data breach requiring compliance action for federal and state breach notification laws. RADAR enables security and privacy professionals to collaborate and analyze the outcome of their incidents to gain insights, identify trends, and determine what actions are required through an incident management dashboard, notification alerts, and incident assessment and remediation summaries and reports. Pairing Security Audit Manager with RADAR helps healthcare organizations establish an efficient and compliant incident monitoring and management program.
"We wanted to provide an advanced risk assessment experience for customers who desire this level of functionality, and we partnered with ID Experts because RADAR delves deeper into possible breaches to uncover additional details," said Frank Fortner, president of Iatric Systems. "In addition, the robust RADAR knowledge base accounts for the intricacies of federal, state, and local jurisdictions that may affect reporting requirements."
"Organizations are looking at the scalability and consistency of their response processes, evaluating their organizational structure and staffing, and adopting automation tools to aid collaboration and streamline the complex processes of incident risk assessment, breach determination and documentation," said Mahmood Sher-Jan, executive vice president and general manager, RADAR product unit at ID Experts. "With integrated best-of-breed software solutions that can bridge the gap between security incident detection and response, organizations can effectively manage and reduce risks from PHI incidents, while helping to ensure compliance with the changing breach laws."
