EHR Vulnerability Reporting A Cause for Concern?

  • Tuesday, 11 Oct 2016 11:00AM EDT (11 Oct 2016 15:00 UTC)
  • Speaker: Greg Porter

In 2015, 84% of all U.S. hospitals were utilizing a basic electronic health records (\EHR") system, as government incentives meant to drive EHR adoption and their use have generally been successful. Yet, the very systems designed to store, process, transmit, and maintain electronic protected health information ("ePHI"), while shepherding in a promising new era of accessibility and the sharing of medical data, are also providing additional opportunities for theft and fraud.

In this presentation, Greg Porter of Allegheny Digital will discuss the current state of EHR security vulnerability reporting, the use of "Certified Health IT Products," and noteworthy testing observations. He will conclude by providing attendees with practical considerations for developing an EHR focused assessment program to identify and monitor software and configuration based weaknesses.

As an attendee, you will walk away with cyber hygiene strategies that address the most pressing issues in healthcare today: ransomware, data breaches, security awareness training, and understanding their health eco-system and where ePHI resides.
