Health sector privacy auditing

Fair Warning : 20 February, 2009  (New Product)
Identity theft and snooping prevention in health care establishments meet legislative requirements using FairWarning privacy auditing tools
FairWarning has provided a detailed mapping that healthcare organisations can use to address new HIPAA privacy law passed in the 2009 Stimulus Bill.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 legislates ambitious investments in EHRs. To further the public's trust, Federal legislators included privacy, enforcement, and administrative language that has a far-reaching impact on the way HIPAA covered entities and their partners will handle and protect patient information. Misuse of protected health information accessed by EHRs has spread rampantly in recent years and the healthcare industry has struggled with patient privacy incidents relating to:

* Medical identity theft
* VIP snooping
* Co-worker snooping
* Family member snooping
* Neighbour snooping
* Identity theft

FairWarning privacy auditing solutions detect, track, and deter such misuses. FairWarning has also announced the company will conduct an Executive Web Conference Series that will feature top industry professionals as well as FairWarning customers offering guidance on real-world solutions to healthcare privacy and HIPAA compliance challenges.

FairWarning's privacy auditing solutions are receiving wide-scale, world-wide adoption driven by recently increased healthcare privacy oversight including: US FTC Red Flag Rules, California AB 211 & SB 541, UK Data Protection Act, UK Information Governance Toolkit, UK Caldicott Guardian Rules, PIPEDA, Canadian Healthcare Province legislation as well as the first unannounced US HIPAA audits.
