ClearDATA, a public cloud security company, launches ClearDATA Assess, a SaaS product providing a streamlined solution for completing the mandatory annual HIPAA Security Risk Assessment (SRA) for covered entities, including hospitals and healthcare organizations as well as their business associates.
Designed to provide risk management with built-in efficiency, Assess provides a view of data security risks for a more collaborative and referenceable Security Risk Assessment Process.
“Our ability to deliver a seamless experience for a HIPAA-mandated audit is what differentiates the Assess software in the market,” said Suhas Kelkar, Chief Product Officer at ClearDATA.
“Our solution further knocks down barriers to security, compliance and privacy within healthcare making it easier to innovate and protect patients simultaneously.”
ClearDATA Assess software acts as a repository of relevant documents including the Security Analysis and Risk Mitigation Reports and facilitates attributable, traceable remediation of identified vulnerabilities.
With the ability to assign tasks at the individual level and monitor progress of remediation daily or year-over-year, Assess creates efficiency and accountability for patient privacy, according to the company.
This helps to establish demonstrable practices towards achieving better security hygiene, the company says.
“Based on our data, nearly half of senior healthcare decision-makers aim to conduct an SRA every six months but time constraints, cost and complicated processes remain the biggest obstacles for completion,” said Carl Kunkleman, Co-Founder and Senior Vice President of Sales at ClearDATA.
“As healthcare faces scrutiny over mismanagement of patient data, I am confident Assess will help implement best practices in security.”
