Phoenix, Ariz. (Feb. 25, 2016) – ClearDATA today announced the first cloud-based system to monitor actual HIPAA compliance levels throughout an organization’s IT environment. The ClearDATA Active Compliance and Security Monitoring Dashboard gives providers, pharma, payers and their business associates unprecedented transparency to quickly identify and remediate physical, technical and administrative safeguards that have drifted out of compliance in their IT environments. The dashboard scales to even the largest IT environments, spanning thousands of cloud and infrastructure systems.

ClearDATA will publically launch the dashboard during the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society 2016 Annual Conference & Exhibition (Feb. 29 to March 3, 2016 in Las Vegas) via an educational session and in-booth demonstrations.

Active HIPAA compliance monitoring

The ClearDATA Security and Compliance Dashboard provides healthcare organizations with a dynamic view into one of their most vulnerable environments for a data breach, their IT ecosystem. Using the dashboard, technology and security professionals can view their organization’s compliance levels across configuration scanning, log-in and log monitoring, log retention, patch-level reporting and backup validation, with additional standard and custom checks being added weekly. Each check is mapped to specific HIPAA security safeguards. Should systems drift from compliance, the dashboard enables customers to view individual system details, in order to understand what steps are needed for remediation.

Continuous security risk analysis

In the wake of an actual breach, the first question organizations will be asked is whether they can provide a full accounting of all their protected health information—including where it is stored and who has access to it. The ClearDATA Active Compliance and Security Monitoring Dashboard gives insight into this data inventory, while also proving the extent to which measures are in place to protect it.

“Healthcare IT and Security professionals have never been so challenged as they are today with meeting HIPAA compliance standards and preventing a data breach at their organization,” said Darin Brannan, CEO, ClearDATA. “The ClearDATA Active Compliance and Security Monitoring Dashboard offers these professionals something that is acutely needed, a tool that rapidly pinpoints where security vulnerabilities exist, including in the context of a HIPAA compliance audit.”
