EHR Vulnerabilities – Examining Current Challenges
The past several years have given rise to the rapid adoption of electronic health records (“EHR”) systems, as government incentives meant to drive EHR implementations have generally been successful. Yet, the very systems designed to store, process, transmit, and maintain electronic protected health information (“ePHI”), while shepherding in a promising new era of accessibility and the sharing of medical data, are also providing additional opportunities for theft and fraud. In this presentation, Greg Porter, of Allegheny Digital, will discuss the current state of EHR security vulnerability reporting, the use of “Certified Health IT Products,” and noteworthy testing observations. He will conclude by providing attendees with practical considerations for developing an EHR-focused assessment program to identify and monitor software and configuration-based weaknesses.
