Business competition today has turned business houses aggressive, some of them even adapting unethical
practices to get hold of competitors’ business information. Cyber criminals therefore find an attractive source of
revenue in getting access to and selling such data to competitors. Patient Health information from Medical
practices has therefore become a target and many such organizations have left themselves easily vulnerable to
such attacks causing data breaches. The patients’ confidential data is being exploited due to the organizations’
incompetent security practices and weak policies.
The compliance practices existent in a majority of the healthcare organizations are hardly adequate in meeting the
criteria for a secure and risk-free environment. Many health care providers have been penalized due to violation of
HIPAA compliance requirements. Despite such strict law enforcements, the health care industry still fails to
implement adequate measures and intelligent solutions.


The healthcare organizations need to employ a dedicated and comprehensive governance risk and compliance
management program to stop the unethical practices data robbery. The compliance solutions should provide
consistent and continuous tracking and monitoring capabilities for assessing the situation and making advanced
preparations for any anticipated threats. The solution should facilitate automated processes capable of integration
and collaboration, ensuring a highly regulated and secured environment.


It should provide real-time information and help the healthcare organizations to obtain maximum benefits from
the up-to-date reports. A supportive reporting system should be able for delivering timely analyses of the existing
compliance status throughout the the organization. The program should initiate credible and effective vulnerability
scanning procedures with strong authentication and authorization methodologies to intercept any illegal requests
or entries.


It is very important to conduct regular audits to get a clear picture of the effectiveness of the security operations.
The audit logs of the compliance related actions provided by the compliance management solution helps in
implementing remediation measures for addressing the threats on time and avoiding the creation of an emergency
situation. Employing solutions that address the risks related to compliance cohesively will bear positive fruits and
help in enforcing a thoroughly compliant healthcare environment.


The healthcare industry loses revenue as it does not have efficient compliance processes that can adapt itself
according to the regulatory changes and address all compliance issues effectively thus resulting in spiraling costs.
The automated compliance management software can help these organizations from incurring further costs by
decreasing the time spent on trying to adjust with the compliance processes. These processes are extremely easy
to deploy and guarantees low investment with high returns.
