Patient Portal Security and Privacy
Patient portals can provide greater timeliness and quality of clinical services to patients, plus lower costs and improved convenience of administrative services. However, there are serious risks associated with unauthorized access to highly sensitive health information, including the potential for medical fraud and identity theft.
Equifax patient identity-proofing solutions help healthcare organizations meet meaningful use metrics for portal usage by facilitating online portal enrollment.
We also help to mitigate the risk of identity-theft and fraud and prevent inappropriate portal access to PHI with multifactor authentication of patients, patient representatives, and providers by enabling secure remote access to confidential personal health information in a cost-effective and scalable manner, without disrupting established information workflows or clinical care procedures.
