Meeting HIPAA Compliance With EventTracker
Source: Prism Microsystems
There are a number of steps a healthcare provider must undertake to meet the Technical Safeguards mandated in the Security Rules of Title II (Administrative Simplification) of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). HIPAA calls for tightly controlling and monitoring access to confidential patient information, and specifically calls out event logs as an important vehicle to meet compliance. This Paper describes how EventTracker from Prism Microsystems, Inc. can be used as the key component for managing the collection, storage and analysis of enterprise event log data. With EventTracker a healthcare provider or related business can be confident they have the solution in place to help effectively meet audit requirements.
