CyberRX for Healthcare Security

crxHITRUST, in coordination with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), revealed the results of the healthcare industry’s first cyber attack simulation, CyberRX. CyberRX is a series of industry-wide exercises used to evaluate the response and threat preparedness of healthcare organizations against attacks and attempts to disrupt U.S. healthcare operations.

The unanimous findings from the exercise are:

  • Organizations that participate in cyber exercises are more prepared for a cyber attack, regardless of the maturity and comprehensiveness of their information security program.
  • Many organizations are not prepared for processing threat intelligence or are challenged with communicating and engaging other stakeholders internally and externally; this issue extends beyond IT to legal/privacy, crisis management, business/clinical operations, management and external business partners; additionally organizations vary in their appetite for and ability to process threat intelligence.
  • Organizations call for greater “freedom” to communicate and collaborate during a cyber crisis and to have a view across the healthcare ecosystem, including common vendors and partners – despite potential legal restrictions and liabilities; participants also uncertain how best to engage law enforcement.
  • Incident response coordination and collaboration capabilities are crucial and the HITRUST Cyber Threat Intelligence and Incident Coordination Center (C3) capabilities should be enhanced to better support broader and more effective collaboration.

In response to the CyberRX findings, HITRUST has established a “Health Industry Cybersecurity Roadmap” which includes:

  • Linking C3 cyber threat intelligence reports to CSF Controls, evaluate current control guidance per threat report and publishing supplemental guidance, if required
  • Enhancing and expanding the collaboration and incident response capabilities of the HITRUST C3
  • Supporting twice yearly CyberRX exercises

The First HTF Demo and Happy Hour was a Success!

Pronoy Saha announces HTF Expansion Plans

Our first demo happy hour was a tremendous success and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. We had five startups, four presenting a healthcare service and one with a product offering. I counted four others in attendance that have startups in various phases of the early startup runway. All attendees were on fire from their individual perspectives. Thanks to all who came out.

Here is a quick recap of our demos and my takeaway from each of them. Thank you to each of these that came out to show us their work.

- Luissette Figueroa, CEO and Co-Founder, Health Innovator Systems. It was a pleasure to meet my counterpart from Austin(she organizes the Austin HTF chapter). Luissette has health technology in her DNA, so to speak: her father Luis, also present last night, built and successfully sold an EMR company in Puerto Rico. Luissette energetically demoed her web-based application HealthPASSKEY that coordinates care by connecting patients with their caregivers, enhancing wellness and communication. At last count last night, she had demoed 11 times. Her product launches in December 2013 – I encourage any organization looking to implement a certified patient portal to get in touch at info@hinsys.com.

- Ravi Kalidindi, Founder, Simple Interact. Ravi’s “patient relationship management” software solution for medical practices, clinics, groups, and hospitals helps them achieve topline growth, and bottom line improvements by building lasting, loyal relationships with their patient base. Simple Interact is currently in beta test and expects to launch by the end of 2013. Ravi is actively seeking discussions with provider practices looking to increase their competitive positioning by strengthening patient loyalty and retention. Please contact Simple Interact at info@simpleinteract.com.

- Dr. Ann Hawkins and Bob Hood, 24 Hour MD Now. Dr. Hawkins and Mr. Hood demoed their 24/7/365 telehealth service that facilitates access to a medical doctor by phone, addressing up to 70% of doctor office visits. 24 Hour MD Now was recently a finalist in a startup competition with 100 others at TCU. Learn more at http://www.24hourmdnow.com.

- Naveen Khan, Founder and CEO, PT PAL. Naveen’s service brings user-centered physical therapy to patients anytime, anywhere. PT PAL is a game-changer in healthcare, increasing compliance with physical therapy and throughput of patients. Learn more at http://physicaltherapypal.com or find the PT PAL app by searching the app store or google play.

- Felix Gutierrez Jr, Founder and CEO, Biometric Data Solutions. Biometric Data Solutions (BDS) offers advanced verification for employees in every industry. Because biometric systems identify people through physical measurements of unique human characteristics or behavior, they thwart attempts of time and or service fraud. The BDS product offering is particularly suited to home health and would reduce up to 95% of associated fraud. Felix is seeking governmental or industry contacts that have influence over authentication and access system buying decisions. Contact Felix at accessdev_2000@yahoo.com.

Thank you to all who demoed tirelessly for the 2 hour event.

In other HTF news, we are planning a social at SXSWi in March and the 2nd Annual HTF Innovation Conference will be in late April or early May in San Francisco. The best way to keep abreast of these and all HTF events is by being a member of our meetup site at http://emsy.us/htfdfw. I would also encourage you to join the home chapter in San Francisco, as the member of 3000+ has an active discussion.

The organization continues to grow worldwide with over 4000 members in 13+ chapters on 4 continents. Leadership is expanding at the chapter level with positions available for Advisory, Organizer, Industry Liaison, Street Team and Intern roles. Please contact local chapter organizers for more information. As always, our greatest proponents are our members. Thank you and please continue to spread the word to colleagues and let me know if you’d like to participate in our street team to help grow event attendance and group membership.

Stay tuned for our next local event, to be announced soon, which will most likely be held on the 21st of November.

Come together for health,

Abstract

Care teams provide the non-visit, continuous care that is essential to population health management. They are also responsible for promoting patient engagement between visits. But, care managers who use manual processes cannot intervene with every patient. That effort requires the use of health information and communication tools that automate the process so that care managers can devote themselves to the patients who need the most attention.

Besides automating care management, the latest technologies enable organizations to analyze population data and stratify patients by risk. Based on that information, they can design engagement strategies tailored to particular subgroups of patients.

Before joining Phytel, he served as CIO and vice president of product management for MDdatacor. At MDdatacor, he led the enhancement of the company’s patented natural language processing engine. He also created medical-home and P4P products that were later used by five Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans. Prior to MDdatacor, Russell was with Ernst & Young’s Technology and Security Risk Services, where his work included Sarbanes-Oxley and financial audits for Fortune 500 companies.

ABSTRACT

In a number of significant ways, managing a Twitter account is similar to managing a radio station. In order to captivate listeners’ attention, the Twitter account must have a “deejay” with a unique and memorable personality who is focused on building relationships with listeners.  A successful Twitter account must also stream quality content that is local and familiar to its audience.

The health care industry is changing dramatically, and Twitter provides the opportunity for clinical and technical professionals to discuss these changes, interact with key decision makers and influence the outcomes. There is tremendous value for a tool that can help facilitate those conversations, and Twitter provides that opportunity.

SPEAKER BIO

Erica V. Olenski is an Account Executive at Corepoint Health and the VP of Communications for the DFW chapter of HIMSS.  She is the founder of the #HITsm hashtag on behalf of HL7 Standards (@HealthStandards) and the weekly tweet chat held on Fridays at 11 a.m. CST.  #HITsm is currently is the #1 most popular healthcare related hashtag on Twitter.
