Laurus Technologies Adds FairWarning® as Healthcare Technology Partner

Laurus Technologies, an IT consulting and professional services firm based in Itasca, IL, announced today its participation in the FairWarning® Ready Solution Partner Program, enabling Laurus to deploy, service and resell FairWarning®’s industry-leading healthcare privacy monitoring solutions. Laurus will offer greater security and privacy measures to hospitals and healthcare providers for their electronic medical records, resulting in greater peace-of-mind for patients that their medical records are kept private. Laurus is one of seven nationwide solutions providers chosen to participate in FairWarning’s® program.

“Healthcare providers are under increasing pressure to safeguard patient data,” said Dave Durbin, Partner, Business Development at Laurus Technologies. “They must concern themselves with requirements imposed by HIPAA, the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act and agencies like the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Health and Human Services (HHS), and the Office of the Inspector General (OIG). These initiatives have imposed an incredible amount of responsibility and accountability on providers in environments that have hundreds of applications and thousands of users that create, store and manipulate protected health information.”

Laurus is substantially strengthening the ability of healthcare providers to meet regulatory requirements, prevent inappropriate access to patient information and automate compliance with privacy provisions. With FairWarning® certification, Laurus Technologies can dramatically ease the effort required to spot suspicious activity and report on unauthorized access to PHI while tracking authorized access for accounting disclosure requirements.

“We share Laurus’ goal of helping healthcare providers improve privacy surveillance,” said Shane Whitlatch, senior vice president of global alliances at FairWarning®. “We are pleased that Laurus Technologies sees the value in our solution for its healthcare customers.”

The announcement marks the latest advancement in healthcare solutions from Laurus Technologies. In addition to working with FairWarning®, Laurus recently partnered with ThinIdentity Corporation to provide virtual desktop infrastructure solutions that help improve caregiver workflow, reduce medical errors and significantly improve workflow for doctors and nurses.
