PHI Security Risk Management: Are You Behind the Curve? - Aug. 28

As the depth and breadth of protected health information (PHI) has increased, the healthcare industry has worked to prevent data breaches. Despite its best efforts, 477 healthcare organizations reported breaches in 2017 and 14.7 million consumers had their medical data breached, hacked or stolen, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Civil Rights.

At the same time, hospital and health system IT staff are confronting significant challenges, including:

  • Changing regulations impacting many organizations’ ability to recover costs, which increases their exposure to fines and penalties and limits reimbursement revenues;
  • Aging technology platforms, with IT security dependent on replacing these systems; and
  • Competing priorities that often make it difficult to secure capital. Moving to an operation expense model is challenging to achieve given costs such as depreciation.

Join IHA Corporate Partner Satori Consulting, Inc. to learn how to create a three-year IT security and compliance roadmap that addresses challenges at your organization. Expert presenters will prepare you to leverage your existing HIPAA Security Risk Analysis and assess and prioritize identified gaps in people, technology, finance and operations. You’ll learn to address identified remediation gaps in a three-year plan (roadmap) and define a case for change within your organization. The expert presenters also will prepare you to put your plan into action by first communicating with key stakeholders.
