In the wake of a tumultuous 2015, which was universally dubbed the “year of the healthcare data breach,” provider organizations are rushing to address potential security exposures—as no organization wants to be featured on the Office for Civil Rights’ (OCR) breach list. An also little known fact, is that the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) has a goal of at least 50 percent of healthcare organizations implementing identity proofing and authentication best practices for 2020. So how can provider organizations go beyond the simple static password? What methods are most effective to ensure the highest level of security and confidentiality of PHI?
This webinar will discuss the findings of a recently completed research report conducted by Healthcare Informatics, which explores the next steps in the cybersecurity evolution focusing on the concepts of two-factor authentication and the management of “digital identities.” This report features the latest survey data and studies from the field, and interviews with top security experts and executives from Cleveland Clinic, Nova Southeastern University, and Boston Medical Center who define the best practices surrounding authentication from patients, to clinicians, to HIEs.
- List current challenges surrounding patient and clinician authentication processes
- Outline current best practices from the field, focusing on Single Sign-On (SSO) systems and other methods
- Define digital identity management and two-factor authentication requirements
- Illustrate practical recommendations for centralizing and adopting improved authentication processes
The Healthcare Informatics research report will be released after the webinar and will feature Two-Factor Authentication and Digital Identity Management in Healthcare. All webinar registrants will receive an advanced copy of the report.
