Miami Jewish Health Systems is an internationally renowned organization encompassing long term care facilities, assisted and independent living facilities, and on-campus acute care services. For nearly a century, Miami Jewish Health Systems has established a successful track record of promoting patient health and improving the quality of resident life. In the expanding complexity of a paperless healthcare world, safeguarding the privacy and security of their patients’ electronic medical and billing records became progressively more challenging.
Bernardo Larralde, the Director of Information Technology for Miami Jewish Health Systems and primary contributor to this case study, was working to keep up with the complex and numerous laws, but quickly realized that the organization would benefit by leveraging BlueOrange Compliance experience. “We had purchased a generic security policies package to help us develop the required HIPAA security measures alone, but the policy development process was cumbersome, complicated and did not provide the required support and guidance offered by BlueOrange,” said Bernie. Recognizing the challenge, Miami Jewish Health Systems partnered with BlueOrange Compliance, a company specializing in assisting Healthcare organizations navigate privacy and security laws.
