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. 

 

Anaeko Data Classification solutions for Compliance

We deliver solutions that scan "dark data" using machine learning to deep-inspect files and objects in order to identify risk and compliance. Our metadata management solutions leverage AI to intelligently classify data, extract, redact and curate files in line with data governance and privacy policy regulations.

Anaeko performed a data discovery within a Central Government Department to analyse asset data and catalogue entities representing facilities, networks, devices, users, permissions, applications and patches across multiple lines of business.

The War on Plastic - Is Data the solution?

20 Mar 2019 by Anaeko 3 minute read

 

It's hard to miss the images of plastic waste in the media, with some of the statistics and pictures being both frightening and sickening. In 2015, the annual production of plastics increased to nearly 381 million tonnes, this is roughly equivalent to the mass of two-thirds of the world population. From a study conducted in 2010, it was estimated that 8 million tonnes of plastic entered the oceans with roughly 10,000 to 100,000s tonnes of plastic in surface waters (Our World in Data).

The Two Main Problems of Artificial Intelligence In Healthcare

27 Feb 2019 by Anaeko 2 minute read

 

Artificial Intelligence In Healthcare

There are few (if any) industries that can be transformed by artificial intelligence to the degree that healthcare can. As initiatives around the world seek to digitize healthcare data, there are huge opportunities for game-changing tools and platforms. However, with potentially a yottabyte (1024 gigabytes) of healthcare data in the United States alone, we are no closer to this utopian, data-driven world of healthcare. Data in existence is not standardized, highly fragmented and is stored in incompatible legacy platforms. The technology exists, so why is healthcare so far behind other sectors in utilizing existing technology and what needs to be done to catch up?

The Role of Government and Big Data in Reducing our Carbon Footprint

13 Feb 2019 by Anaeko 3 minute read

 

Big Data has many wonderful opportunities, some a little advanced for our current infrastructure but may become an everyday reality in a few years. Think of driverless cars or augmented and mixed reality, we are starting to embrace these new concepts but will be another 10 years before they really 'take over the world'. One opportunity that we see disseminating across the world is the use of data for 'Smart Cities'.

Crime Prevention

Imagine the possibility of preventing a fatal offence. This happens more commonly than the public are aware of, all thanks to technology. One example of crime prevention- in 2015, a teenager in England was taken into care after it was revealed he had been researching gun types and nearby school locations to possibly carry out a school shooting. Authorities were able to intervene as the teenager had been flagged as a vulnerable threat.
