Clearwater, FL – May 10, 2016 — FairWarning, the leading provider of application security intelligence solutions in healthcare, today announced the successful completion of the Certification Audit of Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS) for FairWarning’s Patient Privacy Intelligence (PPI) implementation solution for the largest healthcare system in New York’s Hudson Valley.
FairWarning’s Patient Privacy Intelligence solution ensures full compliance with audit trails, record keeping, monitoring and reporting, as required by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and state regulations for electronic prescribing of controlled substances.
The independent audit was performed by Backbone Consultants, a leading provider of IT audit, compliance and security services based in Minneapolis, MN. Backbone tested the customer’s FairWarning implementation solution and its integration with Cerner® Millennium, which the customer uses for its clinical information systems solution and electronic prescribing.
“Our patients’ care is dependent on their ability to trust that their most confidential information is protected,” said John Schwartz, Chief Information Security Officer at the healthcare system. “E-prescribing offers a host of patient benefits, including convenience, safety and access. With this EPCS certification audit, we can ensure our patients’ prescription information remains private and secure.”
“Stolen patient and physician information is often the fuel for fraud and can have lethal implications,” said Chuck Burbank, Chief Information Security Officer at FairWarning. “The electronic prescribing of controlled substances has the potential to reduce misuse, fraud and improve overall patient care.
