Chief information security officers from UPMC, the Cleveland Clinic, Vanderbilt University Medical Center and other leading healthcare organizations joined forces last summer with HITRUST to create the Third-Party Risk Management Council. The reason: Methods employed today to manage third-party risk are cumbersome and generally not effective. What’s more, healthcare providers are increasingly dependent on services controlled or hosted by third parties.
The council’s position: By requiring third-parties that handle sensitive information to adopt a single information security and privacy assessment and certification program, healthcare organizations are better equipped to manage this risk.
In this session, council members will discuss what it takes for third-parties to do business with them – and why standardizing third-party risk management is good for healthcare organizations and service providers.
