Healthcare providers and vendors struggle with some of the same IT security challenges. Providers need to work with the vendors who are willing to improve their security so that both groups are more secure.

When working with vendors around security issues, healthcare organizations need to go beyond the business associate agreement required by HIPAA. They should conduct annual security assessments of their vendors and include date-specific security remediation requirements in their vendor contracts. Above all, they need to work with the vendors who are willing to improve their security so that both groups are more secure. Vendor security is one of the biggest risks for healthcare organizations and one of the biggest sources of frustration for CISOs.

In his presentation, Wellforce CISO Taylor Lehmann, a founding member of the Provider Third Party Risk Management Council, will outline the risks to patient privacy and PHI posed by vendors, security best practices for providers and vendors, and the work of the council in promoting security best practices. 

Learning objectives:
Understanding vendor risks and threats to patient privacy and PHI
How HIPAA applies to healthcare vendors and how providers can ensure compliance
Developing security best practices and deploying security technologies for vendor security
Council’s work on improve provider-vendor collaboration on security
