HIPAAT ensures security and network privacy compliance at Florida hospital
Shands Hospital at the University of Florida (Shands at UF), a teaching hospital of the Shands HealthCare system, has selected HIPAAT Inc.'s products to assist with HIPAA security and privacy efforts.

Shands at UF will install HIPAAT's universal compliance module (UCM), XML auditlog toolkit and stand alone privacy/security repository. The UCM and XML auditlog toolkit generate XML audit messages at source nodes and the privacy/security repository records these XML audit events in a format that allows for a simple, quick and comprehensive search and report.

All systems comply with the HIMSS/RSNA Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE)'s basic security integration profile.

"Implementing HIPAAT's privacy and security systems will enable us to track electronic protected health information (PHI) import and export, manage role-based access and centrally store PHI audit events from all nodes," said Janice Honeyman Buck, director of informatics at Shands at UF. "This will simplify our audit and reporting process."
