"We have a very large number of applications within our network that contain patient records, and the PacketMotion solution is the answer to our HIPAA auditing requirements," said Sandu. "We looked at other solutions to solve our compliance reporting problems, but only PacketMotion provides the most efficient way to meet our requirements. In fact, PacketMotion resolves problems that we couldn’t address before."
PacketSentry supports a broad range of the health IT controls on a single platform that is easy to use and drives down operational costs. It provides healthcare IT personnel with granular visibility into what users are doing and accessing on the network, including a wide range of healthcare applications and data stores. PacketSentry monitors and records user access and enforces policies for databases, including repositories where PHI is stored that must be secured. It identifies and audits PHI resources to protect sensitive patient information, and locks down access. PacketSentry also limits communication to and from third-party devices which are not owned or controlled by the hospital’s IT staff.
According to Sandu, PacketMotion efficiently satisfies his requirements for specific areas of a HIPAA audit. For example, PacketMotion enables Maimonides Medical Center to identify what users did on the network and which patient records they accessed at any time interval. Also, with PacketMotion Sandu can now deliver reports centered on a specific patient across time intervals – including all of the required details on user identity and types of actions taken during each access – and across multiple applications.
