New software from ClearDATA evolves security risk assessments to be more efficient and manageable

AUSTIN, Texas (Mar. 3, 2020)ClearDATA®, the leader in healthcare public cloud security, compliance and privacy, today launched ClearDATA Assess™, a SaaS product providing a streamlined solution for completing the mandatory annual HIPAA Security Risk Assessment (SRA) for covered entities including hospitals and healthcare organizations as well as their business associates. Designed to provide expert risk management with built-in efficiency, Assess provides an intelligent view of data security risks with a sleek, intuitive design for a smarter, more collaborative and referenceable SRA experience.

“Our ability to deliver a seamless experience for a HIPAA-mandated audit is what differentiates the Assess software in the market,” said Suhas Kelkar, Chief Product Officer at ClearDATA. “Our solution further knocks down barriers to security, compliance and privacy within healthcare making it easier to innovate and protect patients simultaneously.”

Unlike a manual assessment of risk, the ClearDATA Assess software acts as a repository of relevant documents including the Security Analysis and Risk Mitigation Reports and facilitates attributable, traceable remediation of identified vulnerabilities. With the ability to assign tasks at the individual level and monitor progress of remediation daily or year-over-year, Assess creates efficiency and accountability for patient privacy. This helps to establish demonstrable practices towards achieving better security hygiene.

“Based on our data, nearly half of senior healthcare decision-makers aim to conduct an SRA every six months but time constraints, cost and complicated processes remain the biggest obstacles for completion,” said Carl Kunkleman, Co-Founder and Senior Vice President of Sales at ClearDATA. “As healthcare faces scrutiny over mismanagement of patient data, I am confident Assess will help implement best practices in security.”

With the addition of Assess, the ClearDATA Healthcare Security and Compliance PlatformTM becomes a de-facto “one-stop-shop” for healthcare and life sciences organizations to view and manage all compliance-related activities and tasks with real-time access to their institutional risk. Customers can further integrate the Assess solution with ClearDATA Comply™ to mitigate security and compliance risk with proprietary Automated Safeguards applied across the public clouds.

Both ClearDATA Assess and ClearDATA Comply will be available to demo during HIMSS 2020 from March 10-13 in booth #5349. Attendees can stop by the ClearDATA booth for a chance to win a free SRA for their organization with a one year trial of Assess.
