How Stony Brook Hospital created an AI-powered culture of privacy – with a tight budget and small staff

June 18, 2019

"The combination of the technology and the human elements really can't be understated." - Stephanie Musso-Mantione, Stony Brook Chief HIPAA Privacy Officer at Stony Brook Medicine

As a state-funded academic medical center with a small privacy team -- just two professionals monitoring 12,000+ EMR users -- Stony Brook Hospital faced challenges in the pursuit of a proactive monitoring program. But even with a limited staff and budget, Stony Brook was able to leverage technology to build a world-class culture of privacy -- and save time by using machine learning to automatically document and dismiss alerts.

"Machine learning absolutely does reduce more of those false positives that we were seeing, and we have data that shows that our cases, our investigations, our alerts are cut in half since we've implemented AI." - Stephanie Musso-Mantione, Stony Brook Chief HIPAA Privacy Officer at Stony Brook Medicine
