Memorial Healthcare System (MHS) faced serious privacy and security scrutiny after the login credentials of a former employee of an affiliated physician’s office was used to access ePHI on a daily basis, affecting the patient privacy of 80,000 individuals. The incident resulted in a record $5.5 million HIPAA settlement to the U.S Department of Health and Human Services and an agreement to implement a corrective action plan.
For MHS, the situation was “sink or swim”, but they recognized the opportunity to gain back patient trust by crafting and executing on a vision of patient privacy excellence. Fast forward to today, and MHS has implemented a complete privacy and security transformation.
On Tuesday, April 10th at 2:00 PM EST, our webinar speaker will be Richard Leon, Chief Information Security Officer at Memorial Healthcare System. During the webinar, he will explain how with the help of partners like FairWarning, MHS gains back time to take a proactive and strategic approach to securing patient data.
