Hospitals often have hundreds of vendors or employees using their healthcare IT systems remotely, leaving their networks and PHI vulnerable to malware, viruses, and unapproved access.
“The current solutions, or lack of solutions, aren’t in the best interest of our hospital or security in general.”
“The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) has expressed interest for hospitals to have information about their vendors' networks and security protocols.”
“With the OCR focusing on Business Partners, there is an increasing gap for hospitals that isn’t filled with current technology or staff.”
“Many facilities don’t have a handle on how vendors got into the system. Anything that could help address the security challenge is a good idea.”
“This would increase security for many hospitals.”
“Every hospital has a need for increased security.”
“We are not doing a good job of managing vendor connections. A solution like this would be a great way to manage vendors.”
