Second Part Of Patient Privacy Guides For Healthcare Organisations Released

Fair Warning : 06 August, 2010  (Technical Article)
Guide from FairWarning details the integration possibilities between its patient privacy framework and standard approaches to enterprise data security such as DLP and Security Information Event Management systems
FairWarning has announced the availability of the Patient Privacy in Enterprise Security Data Definition Guide. This is the second guide in the FairWarning Patient Privacy Framework set of independent data definition guides for patient privacy breach detection and prevention in healthcare.

Healthcare organizations are using FairWarning privacy breach detection solutions to monitor and audit potential privacy breaches within EHRs. The Patient Privacy in Enterprise Security Data Definition Guide details the cooperative correlation possible between privacy breach detection and Enterprise Security technologies, such as Security Information Event Management (SIEM) and Data Leakage Protection (DLP). This allows Information Security personnel to have complete visibility and correlation of suspicious application-level activity with other infrastructure activity, providing a comprehensive end-to-end forensic analysis of an incident.

"The FairWarning Patient Privacy Framework will enable the uninterrupted promotion and adoption of EHRs by providing a practical working framework for enabling patient privacy on a wider scale," said Kurt Long, CEO of FairWarning. "This guide details the data necessary to perform advanced analytics and end-to-end traceability of access to electronic health records."

FairWarning customers are reporting a dramatic reduction in the number of incidents occurring in their organizations, as a result of privacy auditing. The correlation possible between privacy breach detection and Enterprise Security tools further supports the protection of patient privacy.

"Southwest Washington Medical Centre has seamlessly interfaced FairWarning alerts into our ArcSight SIEM, allowing us to correlate breach threats across our service platform, networks and compliance program. You don't know what you don't know, until you have full-spectrum awareness across your service delivery suite. FairWarning fills in the clinical application detail that is missing," says Christopher Paidhrin, Security Compliance Officer at Southwest Washington Medical Centre.
