HIPAA Compliance for Healthcare

Protect Your Patient Records with HIPAA Compliance Automation

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) Security Rule addresses technical and non-technical safeguards to secure individuals’ “electronic protected health information” (ePHI). To ensure compliance with HIPAA requirements, information systems are monitored using security information and event management (SIEM).

A SIEM provides you with actionable reports and empowers forensic investigations. With this tool in place, you will be able to get immediate notification and analysis of conditions impacting the integrity of your organization’s ePHI data.

Cost-Efficient Log Collection and Analysis

HIPAA requires the collection, management and analysis of log data. But IT environments consist of heterogenous devices, systems and applications that are all reporting log data—generating millions of log entries daily, if not hourly.

The task of organizing this information and deriving meaning from it can be overwhelming. The additional requirements of investigating and reporting on log data render manual processes or home-grown remedies inadequate and costly.

LogRhythm can help you to efficiently meet HIPAA compliance directives for log collection and reporting quickly. Case management also enables you to collect forensic evidence for incident response. You’ll be able to use access restrictions to set up who can view specific types of information.
