Tausight Unveils Industry’s First Situational PHI Awareness Platform Built for the Modern Healthcare Ecosystem

Founded by healthcare IT security veteran, David Ting, Tausight uses machine learning and natural language processing to automate PHI detection and compliance and pave the way for information sharing mandated in the 21st Century Cures Act

 

BOSTON — March 7, 2022Tausight, the PHI detection company for healthcare, today unveiled the healthcare market’s first automated, situational awareness platform to detect, track and analyze PHI activity and risk in real-time, anywhere in today’s distributed healthcare ecosystem. Architected by David Ting (founder and CTO), co-founder and former CTO of Imprivata, Tausight’s intelligent, turnkey solution provides IT security teams with 24×7 telemetry on the creation, access, storage, movement and replication of PHI, and automatically produces actionable reports.

Healthcare IT security teams have historically relied on data protection solutions built to lock data inside the firewall. This labor-intensive approach only offers partial protection and can limit clinician or patient access to PHI. Inspired by the decentralization of care and information blocking provisions in the 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act), Tausight has developed a transformative approach to PHI security by delivering a platform that detects PHI stored in a healthcare organization’s data center and at endpoints where it is exchanged between doctors, patients, health systems or applications.

“Upcoming 2022 deadlines in the Cures Act will force information sharing, driving healthcare organizations of all sizes to view PHI as a potential risk that has to be continuously managed,” said Aaron Miri, MBA, FCHIME, FHIMSS, CHCIO, senior vice president, chief digital and information officer at Baptist Health System. “This requires a new automated approach, one that enables healthcare IT security teams to leverage machine learning to detect structured and unstructured data wherever it exists throughout our expanding digital care environment.”

Tausight’s situational PHI awareness platform enables customers to:

  • Mitigate risk across healthcare’s distributed care system — Provides a comprehensive view into all PHI activity in a healthcare organization’s data center and at every endpoint
  • Maintain compliance — Enables the free flow of PHI/EHI and assures compliance with the information sharing requirements outlined in the Cures Act.
  • Manage complexity — Streamlines PHI security with an easy-to-deploy solution purpose-built for healthcare’s unique privacy and workflow challenges and requires minimal training and maintenance. Tausight’s ML and NLP-based, zero-touch, SaaS platform is designed to address IT security staffing challenges by providing users with a comprehensive view of all PHI activity impacting their healthcare organization via a self-service dashboard.
  • Lower costs and increase efficiency — Eliminates the time-consuming process of manually constructing and reporting on limited sets of PHI activity, minimizes the risk of costly fines related to information blocking, and allows clinicians to work securely from any device or location.

“This will be a transformative year for healthcare IT as policy and the technical infrastructure needed for information sharing at a nationwide scale will finally become a reality,” said Frank Nydam, CEO of Tausight. “PHI should be readily available to clinicians and patients — whenever, wherever they need it. The Tausight platform ensures this level of streamlined access to PHI while providing peace of mind that private information stays secure.”

Learn more about Tausight and receive a demonstration of the platform at ViVE 2022 (booth #814), happening March 6-9 in Miami Beach, FL. David Ting will join other healthcare IT security experts for a panel discussion titled, “Response and Recovery: Cybersecurity Vulnerability Management,” on Monday, March 7, at 9:00 AM ET. In addition, Tausight will be exhibiting at HIMSS22 (booth #614), taking place March 14-18 in Orlando, FL.
