Growing Data Privacy and Compliance Threat for Healthcare Organizations

As Hospitals experience an unprecedented level of patient admissions, as a result of the global pandemic, there has been a significant increase in the number of healthcare workers needing to gain immediate access to patient healthcare data. Unfortunately, there have been reports that improper access methods are being used that may be compromising patient privacy and compliance.

According to  CynergisTek, a Patient Privacy Monitoring Service Provider, the CEO observes, “Our clients are on the frontline of the COVID-19 response. As they scale, they are opening up access to medical records for staff and vendors that are working remotely, turning up temporary facilities, and deploying telemedicine solutions. Each of these initiatives comes with inherent security and privacy risks.”

As Data Security Providers’ step-up their detection services to help healthcare organizations identify users who have unauthorised access to data, Managed Print Service Providers need to ensure they are providing a similar capability, in relation to print and document management.

Are you prepared to equip your customers with the print security tools to monitor and protect large volumes of sensitive patient data? To meet this requirement, it is essential that your secure print solution has the ability to:

  • Protect documents at rest and in motion through network communications, by using industry-standard data encryption
  • Forensically inspect and protect content including personally identifiable information (PII)
  • Provide accurate activity tracking for ongoing audits such as data protection impact assessments (DPIAs)
  • Provide comprehensive reporting while leveraging data anonymization to maintain user privacy
