- Automated auditing and monitoring of healthcare applications
- Compliance with key components of the EU Data Protection Act and NHS Information Governance Regulations
- Advanced analytics for the detection of potential privacy breaches
“HCA, along with all other health organisations, has a requirement to meet a growing number of regulatory obligations.
