Protecting PII with healthcare compliance solutions
Healthcare organizations around the globe are seeking healthcare compliance solutions that not only simplify compliance with a growing number of regulations, but also provide effective and cost-efficient tools for protecting PII (personally identifiable information).
From HIPAA and the ACA to Medicare, Medicaid and HCQIA, U.S. regulations governing the operation of healthcare organizations and the use of patient data are varied and complex. Compliance is essential to not only avoid fines and penalties but to ensure that patients receive quality care and that their personal information is protected throughout their healthcare journey.
Perhaps nowhere is patient data more at risk than in email communications. Because email continues to be the #1 attack vector for highly sophisticated threats, many regulations are concerned with email security and retention, and all healthcare compliance solutions must include tools to ensure that email is protected and well-managed.
With the right healthcare compliance solutions, organizations should be better equipped to deal with advanced threats like ransomware and spear-phishing as well as more routine risks like malware and viruses that are spread through incoming email messages. Healthcare compliance solutions can also ensure that organizations have internal controls in place to prevent inadvertent data leaks as well as malicious insiders from compromising patient data.
