While healthcare organizations face significant challenges with HIPAA and the new HITECH requirements, the scope of their compliance and security concerns extend well beyond these regulations, including SAMHSA, PCI, GLBA and COBIT.
According to CynergisTek CEO, Michael "Mac" McMillan in a HIMSS Conference session this week, the industry needs a healthcare solution that takes an integrated approach to all logging, monitoring, audit, and review activities that is intelligent enough to deliver a unified view of compliance and smart enough to incorporate privacy monitoring and tie it back to other activity on the network.
So, this week Novell and CynergisTek partnered to offer the Novell Sentinel Healthcare Solution Pack. Now, healthcare providers have the policies and controls needed to lay the foundation for a comprehensive compliance solution to address a broad assortment of regulations.
This is about as close to magic attendees will get next to tonight’s HIMSS-exclusive, Wizarding World of Harry Potter event at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
Incase you stay up too late and sleep past the end of the show tomorrow, here are all the resources you need to safeguard patient privacy, simplify IT governance and greatly improve safe access to critical resources in your healthcare organization. (Hint: the information in this post will not only justify that Harry Potter ticket, it will save your company so much money you could buy the secret to every Harry Potter spell, curse, and wizardly jinx. )
