Presenters:  Brian Selfridge CISSP, Partner at Meditology Services, and Dawn Smeaton, Director of Web Application Security at Trend Micro

Healthcare organizations are increasingly dependent on web-based technologies to improve patient engagement and address government incentive and regulatory requirements. The success of electronic healthcare record (EHR) initiatives depend on how effectively patients can obtain and manage their health related information securely online.

This challenge is further amplified by the growing complexity of patient data management practices, including outsourcing the development and implementation of web-based platforms to third party Business Associates and their subcontractors.

Organizations are also beginning to understand that HITECH/HIPAA compliance and information security risk assessments are not one-time events and must be implemented as part of a continual security monitoring and remediation program. The impact of lapses in security can be staggering including financial harm, reputational damage, and loss of consumer confidence. As such, healthcare organizations must continuously work to identify web application weaknesses for EHRs and patient portals to defend against increasingly sophisticated external threats.

During this webinar, you’ll learn:

•    Regulatory requirements, incentives, and penalties associated with Patient Portals and other EHR applications.

•    Challenges and solutions for monitoring compliance and assessing the security of third party hosted web applications.

•    How you can minimize EHR application vulnerabilities and improve regulatory compliance.
