Identity Management and Your Privacy Program

July 16, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. ET
An Iatric Systems Summer Camp Webinar

You may understand how patient and user identity challenges can adversely impact your Privacy Program, but do others? If you need material to share, attend this educational session, and/or invite others to attend, too!

Healthcare organizations often use several disparate systems to meet the needs of their patients — EHR systems, Lab systems, PACs and RIS, Billing, Registration, Outpatient and Ambulatory systems, Cardiac Monitoring and Telemetry systems — the list goes on and on. Sometimes these disparate systems use different patient and user identifiers. What happens when one patient has different medical record numbers across systems? What happens when the same employee is referenced differently across systems?

When identifiers follow different standards from system to system, not only does it impose risks with healthcare documentation, it creates challenges with interfacing and linking data between systems. It creates challenges for Privacy and Compliance teams when it comes to knowing which accounts belong to whom. It also creates challenges when it comes to provisioning and de-provisioning access when users are hired and terminated.

This education session will explore these challenges and show how they impact an organization with specific respect to maintaining an effective Privacy Program. It will also highlight meaningful ways to approach patient and user identity management, so you can minimize the adverse impact to your organization.
