Data Breach Preparedness & Response
“Our patients’ health and well-being are of utmost importance to us. So is the security and privacy of their medical information. RADAR gives us a consistent, efficient, and affordable incident management solution that scales and can grow with our business needs.” – Dr. Cris V. Ewell, Chief Information Security Officer, Seattle Children’s Hospital
When a data breach occurs, hospitals and care systems need fast, strategic action. However, the legal and regulatory environment under HIPAA and the HITECH Act, as well as individual state laws, makes compliance a unique challenge. Financial, legal and reputational risks are steep. And the potential misuse of personal identification information (PII) and protected health information (PHI) creates substantial risk to affected patients. The greatest challenge faced by privacy, compliance and information security officials in health care is amassing in-house resources and expertise to sufficiently address issues in accordance with regulatory mandates.

Notification & Reporting Handling notification and calls for a high volume of victims can quickly overburden in-house resources and contribute to added risks, especially for health care organizations where patients often belong to unique populations: minors, the deceased, the critically ill or the disabled.
Monitoring & Recovery When PHI is compromised, credit monitoring alone is not sufficient. To best protect victims, ID Experts’ FraudStop™ solution can include credit, cyber and identity monitoring, along with the Healthcare Identity Toolkit and up to $1 million of reimbursement insurance.
