Security concerns and solutions for staying HIPAA compliant

HIPAA Security Challenges for Key Stakeholders

While HIPAA itself isn’t broken out into separate objectives for each stakeholder in the organization, stakeholders each have different needs around the goal of adhering to HIPAA:

  • CEO – Needs a proactive approach leveraging people, processes, and technology that ensures adherence to HIPAA requirements around safeguarding patient data.
  • CFO – Can’t afford the cost of a breach in compliance. Would rather spend budget on preventative measures, than on responding to a breach.
  • CCO – Wants a plan in place of how to easily and quickly demonstrate
  • CSO – Desires for patient data to remain secure, and a way to know patient data isn’t being misused.
  • IT Manager – Needs to provide a means of visibility into exactly how patient data is used, regardless of application.

What’s needed is a technology that cost-effectively addresses HIPAA security challenges and requirements directly by monitoring the access to patient data, aligning with established policy and processes, providing visibility into how patient data is used or misused, and providing context around either demonstrating compliance or determining the scope of a breach.

How Veriato Helps Address HIPAA Security Challenges

Veriato helps organizations of all kinds satisfy their HIPAA obligations by offering technical solutions through detailed, contextual, rich logging of all user activity – both inside an EHR as well as any other application – combined with robust screen recording and playback. This level of visibility into user interaction with patient data provides comprehensive evidence for compliance audits. Activity data is searchable, making it easy for an auditor, security teams, or IT to find suspect actions, with the ability to playback activity to see before, during, and after the activity in question. Reports can be produced in minutes – typically a fraction of the time needed – and don’t require pulling critical resources from other tasks.

Veriato assists in meeting a number of specific requirements, leveraging its deep visibility into user activity to provide context around access to patient data, showing what was accessed and what was done with the data.

In our next blog post, the last of a three part series, we will walk through a few of these requirements and illustrate how Veriato helps further address some of the HIPAA security challenges faced today.
