Miller School of Medicine Stays on Top of Access to Medical Records With Data Visualization Tool

March 5, 2019

In an industry targeted most by cybercriminals, this healthcare organization needed a solution to help manage access to patient data.

The Challenge

Healthcare is targeted by cybercriminals more than any other industry. Nearly every healthcare organization has suffered at least one recent data breach, with many experiencing multiple breaches. But internal threats from employees now represent the single greatest concern for most healthcare organizations. The UM School of Medicine sought help in countering those threats.

The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine is a large, widespread healthcare organization, with 10,000 employees serving more than 5 million patients. Recently, the executive director of the school’s HIPAA Privacy and Security office was looking for some help in keeping the organization’s EHRs safe.

FairWarning provided that help. FairWarning’s proactive alerts, automated reports, and trend-based visualization help the team stay on top of user activity in accessing medical records. Communications and employee education about compliance has been enhanced. In effect, FairWarning has served as a trusted partner, supporting the organization’s dedication and commitment to the secure and ethical management of patient data.

The Results

  • Automated reports and trend-based visualization help the team stay on top of user activity in accessing medical records
  • Communications and employee education about compliance has been enhanced
