According to a recent report by Redspin, 61% of data breaches of patient health information were a result of malicious intent and have occurred since the August 2009 HITECH Act. The report states that these breaches affected more than 6 million individuals, 43 states including Washington D.C and Puerto Rico experienced at least one data breach and out of the 225 documented breaches one breach alone exposed 27,000 individuals putting their data at risk.
Today, data is portable, and we need to ensure it’s integrity. In September 2010, a computer flash drive containing the names, addresses, social security numbers, and health information of 280,000 Medicaid members was stolen from a health plan providers corporate offices. This is not the first time hundreds of thousands of individuals lost their privacy through a security breach. In 2006, a laptop containing personal health information for 26.5 million veterans was stolen from a Veterans Administration (VA) employee’s home.
These documented breaches are only part of the problem as the breach only needs to be reported to the Department of Health and Human services within sixty days if there are more than 500 patients affected. If there are less than 500 patients affected, the reporting is only required annually.
Healthcare data protection is vital which is why BSI offers the best security solutions designed to protect any organization from identity fraud on the Internet while being instantly scalable and user-friendly.
Our premier product BioSig-ID™ is a unique biometric handwriting and gesture technology that is activated simply by using your mouse to create an online positive ID and includes our Click-ID technology designed to verify the user’s identity by clicking on specific objects in a selected image. uSignonline™ enables users to sign contracts online, thereby increasing and protecting revenue while providing proof that the user authorized the action. WinLogon™ only allows access by the actual user to their authenticated personal computer or other personal device control and will be released later this Spring.
With BioSig-ID™ a complete tracking log is created for every sign in attempt that is made, thus employees can not dispute accessing a file. The activity log provides record retention capabilities and captures when every access was made. It can also show how frequently a person is not authenticated and raise the specter of a forgery. The activity log provides you with a detailed audit trail to streamline your business processes and help you comply with federal regulations.
With a tracking log, BioSig-ID™ helps organizations comply with the privacy, electronic signature and record retention requirements as mandated in the United States by SEC 17a-3 and 17a-4, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLB), HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley and the E-Sign Act.
