Teramind for Healthcare Organizations (HIPAA)

HIPAA compliance and data protection on a unified platform

Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is designed to facilitate efficient flow of the healthcare data and protect patient’s Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Personal Health Information (PHI) and Electronic Health Record (EHR) from fraud, theft or other misuse.

HIPAA is mandatory for all hospitals, medical specialties, insurance providers, pharmacies, medical research companies and health education institutions. In addition, some consultants, accountants and data analytics firms serving the healthcare industry must follow HIPAA requirements. Failing to pass the HIPAA audit has steep penalty and other consequences for the regulated organizations.

Teramind for HIPAA helps organizations conform with ongoing privacy and security requirements of HIPAA regulated PII, PHI and EHR data with its extensive user activity monitoring, data exfiltration protection, audit, reporting and forensics capabilities.

Teramind for HIPAA delivers healthcare data security and governance:

HIPAA specific security and privacy policies

Teramind provides several pre-built policies and rules to protect unauthorized access or sharing of PII and PHI covering the 'Security and Privacy' requirements of HIPAA. Advanced OCR based rules can be setup to detect disallowed content like ICD-10 codes, drug & disease names etc. even inside video or images. Additional custom HIPAA policies and rules can be created with Teramind’s powerful Policy and Rules Editor.

Built-in data discovery and classification

100s of built-in rules for PII, PHI, EHR, PFI, insurance and many other sensitive data types. Custom categories can be created using regular expression and natural language search. Combine OCR and digital fingerprinting with multiple logic, file origin, file properties and data content to discover health and personal information in structured/unstructured data or even images ‘on the fly’.

Meet compliance review and security standards with user profiles and activity monitoring

Identify employees or classes of employees who have access to patient records with individual and group security profiles. Granular user activity monitoring of more than 12 system objects like files, networks, websites, apps, emails, keystrokes even printed documents. Instant alerts and audit trail to meet the compliance and security standard review requirements.

Administrative and technical safeguards

Intelligent behavior-based rule engine automatically detects when users are exposed to, or share unprotected health or personal data. Immediately get notified about harmful user activity or lock out the user before they can perform any malicious or fraudulent act.

Breach reporting, burden of proof and workforce training

Session recordings, session logs, risk analysis reports, immutable logs and audit trails can serve as valuable sources for compliance reporting and burden of proof for any breach audits. The insight derived from the reports and recordings can be used to train employees about how to handle PII, PHI and EHR data in compliance with the HIPAA.
