The partnership provides SPHER customers another layer of security, providing the ultimate protection for their patients.SPHER Inc. combines proven product development and deep healthcare expertise to deliver one of the top solutions for protecting patient data. SPHER Inc. is a leading SaaS-based national healthcare privacy & security solutions company directly involved in the monitoring of unauthorized access of mission critical Electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) as it relates to HIPAA Audit Log Monitoring, HIPAA Compliance Criteria, HITECH Meaningful Use Compliance, and Security Risk Assessments (SRA).  SPHER’s tailored machine learning and pattern recognition architecture consistently monitors, analyzes, and alerts any-sized compliance group and Privacy Officers of abnormal user account activity. 

    Raymond Ribble, President of SPHER states, “SPHER provides advanced patient privacy monitoring technology to HIPAA regulated organizations throughout the United States, and secure communication is essential to patient protection. We are proud to integrate Delivery Trust to expand secure communication for the medical organizations we service.”

    As continued growth occurs in healthcare technology there is a greater need to utilize advanced software to accommodate growth and ensure maximum efficiency and security. The anticipated growth is to increase almost 30% in the next 5 years, creating significant demand for software companies like Identillect and SPHER, Inc.. The global market for healthcare should reach nearly $14.9 billion by 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.8%.

    Todd Sexton, CEO of Identillect comments, “We are extremely pleased to integrate Delivery Trust email security to SPHER’s client offering.  SPHER’s robust activity monitoring software provides a vital aspect of protecting patient data. As with Delivery Trust, SPHER fills a significant need in the medical community and we see both software offerings expanding in the months to come.”

    The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is legislation focused on data privacy and security for medical information. As a result of increasing cybersecurity threats, the rules surrounding internet security were enhanced to protect confidential patient information. In a recent HIMSS Survey, over the past 12 months, 75.7% of respondents said they had experienced a recent significant security incident, 61.4% of respondents said email was the main initial point of compromise. As this problem continues to grow, it is critical that businesses in all industries and especially within HIPAA, where there is an inordinate amount of personal data, utilize encryption.  On Behalf of the Board of Directors of:

    Former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton will be a keynote speaker at the Becker's Hospital Review 7th Annual CEO +CFO Roundtable in November.

    CHICAGO (PRWEB) September 19, 2018

    Becker's Hospital Review is pleased to welcome Hillary Rodham Clinton as a celebrity keynote for Becker's 7th Annual CEO + CFO Roundtable, Nov. 12-14 at the Swissôtel Chicago.

    A Chicago native and the author of five best-selling books, Ms. Clinton has devoted four decades to public service. After graduating from New Haven, Conn.-based Yale Law School, she married Bill Clinton and became a successful attorney. During her 12 years as first lady of Arkansas, she was chairwoman of the Arkansas Education Standards Committee, co-founded the Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, and served on the Arkansas Children's Hospital and Children's Defense Fund boards.

    Ms. Clinton was first lady of the U.S. from 1993 to 2001, during which time she led efforts to improve the adoption and foster care systems, decrease teen pregnancy rates, and establish the Children's Health Insurance Program. In 2000, Ms. Clinton was elected U.S. senator from New York. As senator, she worked to expand access to quality, affordable healthcare and secured funding to rebuild New York after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in 2001. Ms. Clinton was re-elected to the Senate in 2006, winning 58 out of New York's 62 counties.

    The following year, Ms. Clinton became the first woman to win a presidential primary or caucus state, receiving 18 million votes. After campaigning for Barack Obama and Joe Biden in the 2008 general election, she was named secretary of state. Over four years, Ms. Clinton worked to strengthen the country's global leadership and visited 112 countries. Her notable efforts include backing crippling sanctions on Iran and negotiating a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas.

    Ms. Clinton made history again in 2016, becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major U.S. political party. As the Democratic presidential candidate, she won the national popular vote by earning support from nearly 66 million Americans.

    Ms. Clinton will speak at Becker's conference Wednesday, Nov. 14. She joins more than 135 executive speakers, including 78 CEOs and 50 CFOs, who make up a full three-day agenda of sessions on key topics such as strategy, leadership, finance, physician alignment and more.
