Veriphyr CEO Invited by HCCA to Explain How to Detect Patient Data Privacy Breaches

Veriphyr proactively reports impermissible use of patient information as it happens. 

The Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA), the foremost organization  for healthcare compliance professionals, sought out Veriphyr CEO Alan Norquist’s expertise for a presentation on patient data privacy breach detection.

 

Overview of Webinar  

The HIPAA Rule sets forth information system review and audit control provisions requiring covered entities and business associates to implement procedures to regularly and proactively review audit logs that record and examine activity in information systems that contain or use electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI).

Last year, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) issued guidance and announced a $5.5M settlement against a hospital, making it clear that it views proactive audit controls as an essential element of HIPAA Privacy compliance.
In this webinar, Alan covers:
  • Recent changes in the regulatory and legal landscape that are driving the requirement for proactive patient privacy
  • The differences between impermissible use of patient data and a privacy breach
  • The role of proactive detection
  • Alternative models for proactive privacy breach detection
  • The advantages of each approach
  • How to assess which approach is best suited for your organization

The presentation can be purchased for $120, or $99 for HCCA members, here.
