Wake Radiology UNC REX Healthcare Selects Veriphyr to Protect Patient Data Privacy

One of North Carolina’s Largest Outpatient Imaging Providers Uses
Analytics Service to Detect Inappropriate Access to Medical Records

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#HIPPAVeriphyr, a leader in healthcare
patient data privacy monitoring, announced today that Wake Radiology UNC
REX Healthcare (WakeRad REX) has selected its service to detect and
deter inappropriate access to patient medical records, the first time it
occurs, across all of their 14 locations. With Veriphyr, WakeRad REX can
document its compliance with HIPAA/HITECH regulations that mandate its
staff only access patient data when necessary to perform their job
responsibilities.

WakeRad REX selected Veriphyr after a comprehensive evaluation of
leading patient data privacy monitoring solutions.

“We chose Veriphyr because it provides the precise level of detail we
need, without false positives, on patient data access activity and
doesn’t impact our existing systems. This service also has a rapid,
no-cost setup and doesn’t require ongoing intervention or support from
our clinical or IT staff,” said Matt Dewey, Chief Information Officer
for WakeRad REX. “With Veriphyr in place, our privacy officer receives
reports that demonstrate our compliance with data privacy guidelines and
can generate ad hoc reports through Veriphyr’s online portal.”

Veriphyr’s proactive patient privacy monitoring uses Structural
Analytics™ to automatically understand each organization’s unique set of
job responsibilities, including which workers are associated with which
responsibilities. Then, it can automatically determine when a worker
moves from one set of job responsibilities to another. By monitoring
every worker’s access to patient data, Veriphyr accurately identifies
instances when the type or volume of activity is outside of an
individual’s job responsibilities and poses a potential privacy
violation. Veriphyr proactively monitors all access to patient data by
employees and non-employees in electronic health records (EHR) systems
as well as other clinical or business applications.

“WakeRad REX, like every healthcare provider, was struggling to comply
with stringent patient privacy mandates across a massive and constantly
growing data set,“ said Alan Norquist, CEO and Founder of Veriphyr.
“Veriphyr’s ability to detect and report on worker violations of
organizational privacy and impermissible use policies, even if it occurs
only once, proved to be a must-have technology for the practice.”
