ID Experts Announces RADAR™: A HITECH Risk Assessment Tool for Healthcare Security Breach Incidents Affecting Patient Privacy
Date:7/21/2010

BEAVERTON, Ore., July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Whenever there is a security breach of any size involving protected health information (PHI), the healthcare industry is now required under the HITECH Act to complete an incident-specific risk assessment.  ID Experts®, the leader in comprehensive data breach solutions that deliver the most positive outcomes, today announced RADAR—Risk Assessment Documentation and Reporting—the industry's first expert software tool to measure an incident's risk index (IRI) by combining the severity of the episode and the sensitivity of the exposed data to quantify the incident's overall harm threshold.  Designed for healthcare providers, HIPAA covered entities, and their business associates, RADAR was developed to efficiently and consistently meet all of the requirements for complying with the HITECH Act data breach notification provisions for security and privacy breach incident harm threshold assessment, documentation and reporting.
