Over the past decade, healthcare provider organizations have faced ever increasing pressure to address regulatory compliance requirements. As challenging and time consuming as that can be, they must now also harden their systems to protect against fraud, insider abuse, and cyber-attacks. Healthcare organizations are required to implement comprehensive data security programs and face Health and Human Services Office of Civil Rights audits to verify compliance with HIPAA’s Security Rule, Privacy Rule, and Breach Notification Rule.
A robust, structured identity governance and access management program is required to address these challenges. A comprehensive identity program can help healthcare organizations address the most important identity-driven security and privacy challenges, including:
Meet HIPAA and HITECH compliance audit requirements.
Create, manage and document information access policies as well as employees’ individual access rights.
Maximize operational efficiency.
Automate formerly manual processes for requesting, granting and provisioning access to needed resources.
Protect patient data.
Protect highly sensitive patient data, with many healthcare organizations citing this as a competitive differentiator.
Protect valuable IP.
Many academic medical centers have valuable IP that if exposed, would have catastrophic financial implications.
Maintain security during organizational change.
Mergers, acquisitions and the onboarding of new technologies create havoc for identity programs.
SailPoint offers robust and comprehensive identity and access management solutions that give healthcare organizations the visibility and control required to address security and privacy requirements for electronic health records and electronic protected health information (ePHI).
Stop Identity Ills Before They Happen
SailPoint’s next-generation identity governance solutions for compliance and user provisioning give healthcare organizations the ability to streamline access delivery and oversight for clinical, financial and back-office applications – from the datacenter to the cloud. SailPoint also provides out-of-the-box connectors to the most popular EMR solutions, such as Epic, Cerner, and GE Centricity.
With SailPoint, healthcare systems and organizations have the ability to deliver robust security and compliance benefits:
Gain visibility to who has access to what
SailPoint gathers identity data across all applications and resources, whether on-premises or in the cloud, providing centralized visibility into user access rights, and creating a governance foundation for establishing controls over that access.
Maintain control over access to sensitive applications and data
SailPoint provides a highly-extensible framework for defining and implementing both detective and preventive controls in the form of policies that govern user access requests, separation of duty (SoD) enforcement and access reviews.
Streamline access request and delivery
SailPoint’s self-service features empower users to request access within a governance framework that ensures they are authorized based on their role.
Manage complex user relationships
SailPoint provides a comprehensive identity model to fully manage and govern users and the multiple identities (or personas) common to healthcare organizations. For example, a practicing physician that also serves as a department head. SailPoint creates and maintains rich information about each persona to provide granular, nuanced control.
Maintain and demonstrate compliance
Healthcare organizations can use SailPoint solutions to reduce compliance costs while meeting the highest standards of corporate governance mandated by HIPAA, HITECH, PCI and SOX. SailPoint allows organizations to build a single framework for preventing and detecting access problems that support all identity processes.
