FairWarning® Announces CloudConnect as First to Achieve FairWarning® Ready for Identity Management Certification

FairWarning, Inc., the inventor, patent holder and world’s leading supplier of privacy monitoring solutions for electronic health records, today announced that CloudConnect Health IT is the first vendor to achieve certification in the FairWarning® Ready for Identity Management program. Designed to help hospital customers make better use of their existing investment in IT infrastructure, the FairWarning® Ready for Identity Management program enables identity management application vendors to seamlessly integrate with FairWarning® patient privacy monitoring to provide customers with advanced privacy monitoring analytics, filtering and workflow capability.

With customers representing over 1,100 hospitals and 4,600 clinics around the globe, FairWarning® has seen an increasing investment in identity management infrastructure across the healthcare industry. The FairWarning® Ready program focuses on collaborating with select identity management vendors who have demonstrated a track record of customer success in healthcare to speed and improve patient privacy monitoring deployments and protect against inadvertent, criminal and fraudulent misuse of electronic health records.

“By integrating CloudConnect’s `CloudIdentity' identity management solution with FairWarning®, FairWarning® can deliver much richer information to its small to midsized healthcare customers,” says John Houston, President, CloudConnect. “Better user identity information will help ensure secure and appropriate access to patient information.”

“We believe that the permanent HIPAA audit program which is scheduled to start in early 2014 will require continued attention to privacy, security, and compliance,” says Shane Whitlatch, Executive Vice President Global Alliances, FairWarning®. “By leveraging identity management investments, small and midsized healthcare providers will dramatically reduce the time and effort required to integrate key identity data and deliver sustainable compliance through their patient privacy monitoring program."

Drive Identity-Aware Privacy Analytics, Filtering, and Workflows
