UPMC’s FairWarning® implementation will ultimately integrate logs from over one hundred applications, involving aggregating access log information for over 75,000 users, making it a very complex environment.
Phasing the project to meet critical milestones was a key to success. UPMC project sponsors aimed to “first prove it could be done,” to build momentum and ensure long-term use and overall adoption. The first phase was to gather log information from a couple of data sources, integrate user information from IdM and successfully deploy it to a “Phase One” group of UPMC managers and Privacy Officers. The second phase involved integrating log information from six data sources, the training of UPMC’s Privacy Officers and the deployment to UPMC’s management staff.
Today, UPMC is collecting audit log data from more than forty applications, representing all major clinical systems in the enterprise. Ultimately, UPMC expects to collect data from more than one hundred clinical information systems.
