Clearwater Compliance’s IRM|Pro ™ Offers Expanded Enhancements to Address Evolving Hospital Cybersecurity Threats

Tool Innovation Boosts Cybersecurity Operational Efficiency, Offers Real-Time Data Visualization

 

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Clearwater Compliance, a leading provider of hospital and health system cybersecurity and compliance solutions that are exclusively endorsed by the American Hospital Association, today announced a major upgrade to its software solution, IRM|Pro™. The new features available with version 5.0 offer increased operational efficiency and high-performance enhancements with a refreshed interface offering seamless navigation and multiple browser support, enabling users to run analytics in real time from anywhere. Advanced dashboards with configurable views and reporting capability provide visibility into a hospital system organization and enables users to determine exposures. For large health systems, the Entity Hierarchy feature provides for the cascading and inheritance of data from parent to child entities, saving hours of data entry time.

“Hospital leaders concerned about evolving cybersecurity threats now have a powerful new tool to help operationalize their cybersecurity strategies across the enterprise,” said Bob Chaput, CEO of Clearwater Compliance. “Healthcare organizations are starting to understand that cybersecurity is more than just an ‘IT problem’. Clearwater continues to innovate to better equip healthcare organizations by treating cybersecurity as an organization-wide risk management and patient safety issue rather than a business risk management or IT issue.”

IRM|Pro is used as a teaching tool and in research by Ferris State University as part of an academic cybersecurity collaboration with Clearwater to integrate cybersecurity into the university’s core curriculum for its Information Security and Intelligence programs. Ferris was ranked in the top 25 percent of Ponemon Institute’s 2014 Best Schools for Cybersecurity©, has been recognized as a national leader in cybersecurity education and research, and is one of several National Security Agency/Centers for Academic Excellence using IRM|Pro to teach information risk management.

“Managing cybersecurity vulnerabilities in healthcare is becoming more complex,” said Alberto Medina, HIPAA Security Officer for Manati Medical Center. “Clearwater’s enhancements to the IRM|Pro tool offers a guided, broad approach to fostering better cybersecurity within hospital organizations. The new tool improves organizational visibility into threats and can help prioritize a hospital’s cybersecurity program’s strategies and activities based on a greater understanding of risks.”
