Securing Data Throughout the Care Continuum

The continuum of care is a concept involving an integrated system of care that guides and tracks patients over time through a comprehensive array of health services spanning all levels of care. Interoperability is the central idea to this care continuum making it possible to have the right information at the right time for the right people to make the right decisions.

While the patient is at the center of the care continuum, they’re surrounded by healthcare providers using a myriad of technologies to improve patient care and bring efficiencies to the business of delivering care.

With the healthcare industry in a constant state of change and the threat landscape rapidly escalating, healthcare providers and their service providers must progress beyond compliance requirements. They need to implement advanced security technologies and sophisticated risk management practices to provide the level of privacy and security needed today.

Healthcare providers need to be sure that health data is secure – whether that be data on wearables, a physician’s tablet, a nurse’s intake form, a medical device in the operating room, big data analytics collected in the cloud, a health information exchange, medical billing, and more – all going in and out of a hospital’s network. Coalfire helps healthcare providers and service providers secure their environments and technologies to protect patient data throughout the care continuum. For example, our third-party risk advisory services help providers meet requirements for testing and reporting on the effectiveness of their vendor risk management programs.

We offer value in working with a partner that is well-versed in assessing environments and technology solutions that make up the care continuum. Coalfire helps healthcare organizations confidently secure data with our unique visibility into the entire health data ecosystem. We’ve collaborated with leading technology organizations to drive the acceptance of the Internet of Things (IoT) and virtualization/cloud services by assessing or validating most of the standard and emerging technologies and architectures in the market. We apply this knowledge to your organization to help establish a sustainable, effective security, risk and compliance program.
