Automated Data Classification for Healthcare Security

02 Dec 2019 by Emma Foster 2 minute read

Providers in the healthcare industry must take every precaution to ensure the data they are handling is protected with levels of data security and privacy.

To ensure healthcare companies follow security and privacy, regulations are outlined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), including policies and procedures so all healthcare providers can establish compliance. One of the challenges in becoming HIPAA compliant is the large amount of data and unstructured data that organisations need to handle, track and classify to eliminate risk of exposure. This is were data classification can help give a view of compliance and assess data to make sure it is handled in the correct way.

 

Automated Data Classification 

Data classification involves the application of a classification for a particular document, file, image, piece of data or message by a pre-defined rule set and is usually done manually by an individual classifying the documents they have created, modified or touched. Automated data classification and data discovery can solve the problems of analysing huge amounts of data and reduce time on human resources by introducing machine learning to process data and achieve a high level of precision in classifying data and ensuring compliance.

 

An example from Axis Technical explains how a financial services holding company used machine learning technology and data classification to analyse a back log of existing paper based Health Claims Forms, transform these into contextual data and process 4.5 million claims forms annually. The transfer of claims data across providers, doctors and patients had to be HIPAA compliant so with machine learning processes in place data could be tagged and reliability was greatly improved.

 

"The financial services holding company was able to cut overall claims processing costs by 65% through a combination of automated data extraction and auto-adjudication functionality."

 

Providing streamlined processes and data optimisation solutions for the healthcare sector means they can effectively maintain regulatory compliance and focus on their core mission of patient care and improved services.

Bring your data together and listen to its story 

The advent of digital age led to a new data revolution. Data is viewed as a new high worth commodity that can enable organisations to analyse their current operations, optimise their processes and predict their future offerings. Organisations are now realising the true potential of data but struggling to derive meaningful insights from the data. Not just the private sector, even public sector organisations are struggling and under pressure to provide digital services to citizens powered by data. Public sector organisations have a huge amount of data, right from citizens’ personally identifiable information, confidential medical information, financial information, social security information and so much more. Accessing and using this data poses several challenges to the public sector organisations.
