Security innovator launches healthcare
VICTORIA, B.C. –
PresiNET Systems Inc., a network management and security compliance
specialist, has announced the launch of an affiliate company called
PresiNET Healthcare Marketing Inc. The new outfit will address the
rapidly developing demands for privacy and security of personal health
PresiNET Healthcare will focus on the unique needs of the healthcare
market to provide Privacy Assurance, Regulatory Compliance, Business
Intelligence and Network Management through a comprehensive family of
products focused on Health Network Surveillance.
“With more and more personal health information being stored digitally,
data breaches remain a constant threat at healthcare institutions,” said
Jo Surich (pictured), President of PresiNET Systems. “These breaches
threaten patient privacy and place healthcare providers at risk for
PresiNET Healthcare is set to launch a family of products to meet North
American regulatory compliance laws and guidelines, as well as to
provide important business intelligence analytics for real-time
performance monitoring of key indicators.
PresiNET Healthcare’s family of scalable products cover the privacy and
security requirements of small clinics to large enterprises. Automated
and configurable reporting systems will drive costs down for required
compliance and risk assessment reporting. They will also enable
organizations to more effectively manage and maintain privacy of their
own health information.
In too many facilities, Surich explained, the focus is on building
impressive-looking barriers and then hoping for the best. “Everybody
builds big fortresses, you put in the firewalls, you put in the
intrusion detection, you feel very secure. You have a castle with a moat
around it but, what is being observed is that most threats are actually
coming from inside.”
The PresiNet system allows monitoring of usage inside the network in
such a manner that possible security breaches can be spotted – thereby
alerting management of the need to take action. In many facilities, only
random audits well after the fact can detect such intrusions; in most
cases, the audits are never conducted.
Growth in personal health information security is being driven by the
worldwide development of Electronic Health Records, funded in part by
local and federal initiatives – such as Canada Health Infoway and the
American ARRA. Both countries share the goal to have the majority of all
patients using an Electronic Health Record by 2015.
It has been widely reported that in 2010 privacy breaches cost a typical
health organization up to $2 million dollars annually, yet the vast
majority of health delivery institutions today have inadequate security
controls in place to protect their information.
