Iatric Systems named no. 1 in “Best in KLAS” report for patient privacy monitoring for second consecutive year
Iatric Systems, today announced that its Security Audit Manager product was named KLAS Category Leader in the Patient Privacy Monitoring segment of the 2015/2016 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Services report.
Security Audit Manager, which was named Category Leader in the 2014 report as well, once again received high marks in every category. Security Audit Manager automates patient privacy monitoring through integrating and correlating data from all access to Protected Health Information (PHI) across disparate systems. It also provides alerts on potential privacy breaches, identity theft, snooping, and other suspicious activity.
With the Auditor’s Desktop module, Security Audit Manager provides privacy analytics, which allows the solution to learn from previous audits to help continuously make better audit determinations. Analytics capabilities help Security Audit Manager improve productivity by ranking violations within multiple audits by severity so auditors can take appropriate action.
“Proactively protecting patient privacy is becoming increasingly important, and it’s also becoming increasingly more complicated. Through Security Audit Manager and privacy analytics, Iatric Systems is helping hospitals streamline patient privacy monitoring processes and reduce the risk of a breach or other malicious activity,” said Rob Rhodes, Vice President at Iatric Systems. “With more than 10 years of experience developing and implementing Security Audit Manager, we know what to look for in EHRs to better recognize what might be a breach. This expertise has led to Iatric Systems creating unique products and processes for finding the needle in the proverbial haystack.”
Security Audit Manager, initially released in 2003, has been implemented in nearly 1,000 healthcare facilities in the U.S. and Canada. The Iatric Systems suite of patient privacy solutions also includes Privacy Risk Manager, which monitors the risk of business associates accessing PHI to help fight external threats to patient data.
“We’re proud to be recognized as a KLAS Category Leader for the second year in a row because it reflects customers’ confidence in the value Security Audit Manager brings to their healthcare organizations,” said Frank Fortner, President of Iatric Systems. “It is especially rewarding that 100 percent of our customers surveyed considered Security Audit Manager part of their long-term plans. While it’s exciting to be the recognized leader in solving one of the healthcare industry’s most pressing problems, it is an honor to know so many hospitals trust us with their patient privacy strategy; that’s a responsibility we take very seriously and work tirelessly to support.”
