In the past, medical records such as patient histories and charts were paper documents, but increasing electronic data storage, distribution and loss have been the driving force behind new health laws.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), which falls under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), requires all healthcare organizations to apply uniform data security and privacy processes to uphold patient-physician confidentiality.
Praetorian Secure has the processes, policy and controls management to reduce data loss, improper e-mail distribution and wrongful access that occurs due to datacenter breaches, lost or stolen laptops, storage devices – hard drives, discs, USB thumb drives, and wireless handheld PDA devices.

Healthcare organizations continue to underestimate the high costs of data breaches due to compliance failure with HIPAA and HITECH, thus increasing legal liability through enforcement of civil fines and possible criminal convictions.
To avoid this, Praetorian compares your security posture with others in the industry to ensure best management practices are in place. This includes recommending or evaluating an electronic health record (EHR) system with open architecture to integrate best in class information security systems and tools.
This approach will allow Praetorian to minimize gaps in policies, and make sure solid procedures, controls, assurance and regulatory compliance processes are optimized on a daily basis.
