In a healthcare environment increasingly dependent on the sharing of electronic protected health information (PHI), covered entities (CEs) must adopt best practices for safeguarding against unauthorized access to sensitive patient data. As a baseline, healthcare organizations need to address HIPAA technical safeguards governing access to ePHI, audit controls for logging data access, maintenance of data integrity, end-user authentication, and methods for securing transmitted data. While these technical requirements of HIPAA help inform data security best practices, they do provide detailed prescriptions for CEs and their business associates (BAs), which remains a pressing need across the industry.
In this presentation, Sentara Healthcare Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer Dan Bowden will share the integrated health system’s efforts to comply with HIPAA and protect sensitive files and patient information wherever and whenever accessed.Learning objectives:
