courage. innovation. dedication.

The Privacy Excellence Awards presented by FairWarning® celebrate healthcare leaders around the world who are committed to delivering better care through courage, innovation, and dedication to patient privacy. This program is designed as a tribute to healthcare privacy heroes from healthcare organizations large and small. Through sustainable regulatory compliance programs, these organizations are protecting patient privacy at the highest levels.

"As last year's Overall Achievement Award winner, it is an honor to serve as a judge this year and participate in determining those health care providers, my peers, who have made an exemplary commitment to privacy."

- Dena Boggan, HIPAA Privacy/Security Officer, St. Dominic Hospital.

"It is my hope that recognizing and sharing privacy best practices will enable healthcare privacy and security professionals to increase patients' trust in our ability to safeguard their most privacy data and information, and truly engage patients in sharing and exchanging their information when and where it is needed."

- Cassi Birnbaum, 2015 AHIMA President/Board Chair.
