Healthcare: The IT Assurance Challenge
MetaCompliance – Delivering IT Assurance with User Awareness and AccountabilityManaging IT Assurance awareness in Healthcare has never been more crucial, or more difficult. The increasing mobility and integration of IT systems has serious implications for the security of patient sensitive data. Human behaviour is at the core of IT Assurance. Employee awareness is the single biggest differentiator between nominal and best practice information governance programmes, and is an essential factor in maintaining regulatory compliance. Current methods of communication, such as email and corporate intranet are costly, time consuming and can’t deliver the necessary results.
MetaCompliance enhances the existing user awareness strategies, such as e-Learning, that are already in place within most healthcare organisations. The software provides the user with a single point of interface for all of their compliance responsibilities. Most healthcare employees, despite being busy with their day to day duties, are aware of the public exposure associated with data loss, they accept that participation in compliance initiatives is important. MetaCompliance allows these users to manage their compliance tasks and respond to compliance communications at a time that most benefits them and their organisation.
