Kroll Fraud Solutions to Host Webinar for Healthcare Organizations on Achieving HITECH Compliance
Date:12/7/2009

Data security experts at Kroll Fraud Solutions will host a webinar that outlines important steps healthcare organizations should take to comply with requirements set forth in the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH)

Nashville, TN (PRWEB) December 7, 2009 -- Data security experts at Kroll Fraud Solutions will host a webinar that outlines important steps healthcare organizations should take to comply with requirements set forth in the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), scheduled to go into effect on February 17, 2010. The webinar coincides with Kroll's Dec. 1 release of the whitepaper "Low Tech is the Path to HITECH."

HITECH, part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, expands current federal privacy and security protections for healthcare and patient data. It requires that covered entities notify patients if a data breach exposes their Protected Health Information (PHI) to unauthorized persons, and mandates notification to affected individuals within 60 days of breach discovery.

According to Kroll, technology alone won't ensure data security; all cyber measures must be combined with low tech approaches, including employee training in data handling. As organizations examine their data security measures for compliance, Kroll encourages organizations to take the following steps, all of which are detailed in "Low Tech is the Path to HITECH":

1.   Know your data: Understand the what, where, and when of the data housed within the organization, and then determine how and why it is accessed, used or transported.

2.   Know your employees: Recognize that hiring best practices are an important component in security, as are training and communication.

3.   Know your partner: Assess the importance of performing due diligence with third party vendors and making them aware of their responsibilities in keeping patient data safe.

4.   Know your response plan: Examine the steps needed to actively prepare, respond and minimize the risk of a data security incident, through a comprehensive and tested data breach response plan.
