Health information privacy and security

Strengthen the privacy and security of health information with a data management platform that protects data at its source

Cloud services, mobile devices, IoT, electronic records and many new technologies can enable health professionals to enhance care, but this digitization can also complicate protecting sensitive patient data.

The OpenText™ Alloy™ for Healthcare portfolio of cloud-based solutions and best practices support health information privacy and security, whether data is in motion or at rest. Combined with consulting and professional services, OpenText experts help health systems meet and exceed compliance requirements for data privacy and security.

What is health information privacy and security?

Health information privacy and security regulations protect patient information. Misused Personal Health Information (PHI) and Personally Identifiable Information (PII) can have devastating effects on patients and their families. In the wrong hands, PHI and PII such as social security numbers, birth dates and Medicare numbers can put patient financials at risk, stimulate Medicare fraud and more.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rules are Federal laws designed to protect patient data. They set the guidelines and mandates for protecting data and applying penalties when that data is mishandled. These rules require health systems and other Covered Entities to be vigilant in managing patient and even financial data.
