Program content:

Every year hospitals engage more business associates, and while these professionals deliver much-needed services, they also account for 59% of the data breaches now being reported.1 With ever-increasing complexities, managing these third-party relationships can be a major challenge. Additionally, these companies are gathering large quantities of organizational data. How can you use that data to benefit various departments across your hospital?

Join our webcast discussion for guidelines on planning and identifying risks inherent to business associate activity, oversight and monitoring. Learn about the hottest analytics tools being used today.

Learning objectives:

  • Explain why business associates account for a growing percentage of breach activity and why that's important
  • Describe monitoring tactics, e.g., those applicable to vendor agreements 
  • Determine preparedness plans and tools, and stakeholders you'll need to steer toward improvement
