Enabling Healthcare Risk and IT Security professionals to streamline and scale Third Party Risk Management programs

The need for Third Party Risk Management for Health Providers

The health sector handles some of the most private and sensitive personal data, and patients have the right to expect that information will be looked after but targeted breaches and data loss incidents are becoming more common

Healthcare organisations increasingly rely on suppliers and other third-parties to facilitate billing, data management and infrastructure, and other clinical services, handling and processing sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (PII) from National Insurance and financial records to patients’ conditions and diagnoses.

With the volume of electronic medical data traveling across these third-parties, healthcare organisations are facing unprecedented risk.

That why DVV Solutions has developed a range of services and solutions to deliver more effective and efficient Third Party Risk Management for Health Providers

Third Party Supplier Risk and regulatory compliance converge

Studies have found that organised crime is increasingly targeting healthcare organisations because health records are worth more and are typically easier to get. The top findings of the 2014 Vendor Risk Management Benchmark Study conducted with Shared Assessments reveal that current third-party risk management practices cross-industry — especially insurance and healthcare — are vulnerable and lacking in governance, policies, standards, and procedures.

The legal framework governing the use of PII data in health care is complex. It includes the NHS Act 2006, the Health and Social Care Act 2012, the Data Protection Act, EU GDPR and the Human Rights Act. However, one thing remains constant – the need to ensure you have performed the highest level of due diligence and IT risk assessment when selecting and working with any Third-Party supplier.
