Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare Selects Veriphyr Patient Privacy Monitoring Service to Protect Patient Data Privacy

Hospital in Minnesota Uses Patient Privacy Monitoring Analytics Service to Detect Inappropriate Access to Medical Records.

Veriphyr, a leader in healthcare patient privacy monitoring, announced Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare (Gillette Children’s) selected its service to detect and deter inappropriate access to patient medical records, the first time it occurs in healthcare applications, including Cerner.

With Veriphyr, Gillette Children’s can document its compliance with HIPAA/HITECH regulations that mandate staff only access patient data when necessary to perform their job responsibilities.

We chose Veriphyr Patient Privacy Monitoring Service to proactively detect anomalous access to patient data,” said Susanna, Compliance & Privacy Officer for Gillette Children’s.

With Veriphyr, our staff receives proactive reports that demonstrate our compliance with privacy guidelines, and we can generate ad hoc reports through Veriphyr’s online portal.”

We appreciate how Veriphyr doesn’t require ongoing intervention or support from our clinical or IT staff and it doesn’t impact our existing systems,” said Matt Hotujec, CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) for Gillette Children’s.

Veriphyr’s proactive patient privacy monitoring uses Structural Analytics™ to automatically understand each organization’s unique set of job responsibilities, including which workers are associated with which responsibilities. Then, it automatically determines when workers move from one set of job responsibilities to another.

By monitoring every worker’s access to patient data, Veriphyr accurately identifies instances when activity is outside of an individual’s job responsibilities and is a potential privacy issue. Veriphyr proactively monitors all access to patient data by employees and non-employees in Cerner, Epic, Allscripts, and other clinical or business applications.

“Every child deserves to be treated like a VIP in the protection of their medical privacy. Gillette Children’s uses Veriphyr Patient Privacy Monitoring to address stringent patient privacy mandates across a massive data set,“ said Alan Norquist, CEO and Founder of Veriphyr.

“Veriphyr’s ability to detect and report on potential privacy issues, even if occurring only once, proved to be a must-have technology for the hospital.”
