Community Hospital Saves Time, Transforms Privacy Program with Proactive Monitoring

March 12, 2019

As a full-service, acute-care hospital offering world-class medical treatment in a healing, family-centered environment, Community Hospital has always understood that their patients’ health is highly personal. As such, they’ve been committed to protecting patient privacy for generations.

As Community Hospital expanded into a new 140,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility, their expert IT team looked at their EHR platforms, manual auditing processes, and security protocols and realized they needed to transform and streamline their current patient privacy practices. They determined the next best step was to implement a more robust patient privacy monitoring system. This would help them maintain a more secure environment and keep up with the ever-changing needs of a growing organization in a highly regulated industry.

"FairWarning's platform and Managed Privacy Services saved us at least a full day's worth of work every week."

Before FairWarning, the Community Hospital IT team spent hours searching multiple EHR programs, analyzing data, and running logs in the event of a potential incident. After FairWarning’s implementation, Community Hospital’s auditing process was drastically reduced by eight to 10 hours per week — a full day’s work. These time-savings helped transform their privacy program by:

  • Saving staff time with more streamlined EHR system monitoring
  • Enforcing security and privacy protocols
  • Helping the IT team keep up with HIPAA compliance standards
