Beaumont Health System is a premier healthcare provider serving the southeast region of Michigan. Understanding the most effective approach to reduce risk across a 20,000 user environment is no simple task. As part of the planning process for expanding their patient services, Beaumont Health System went beyond the mandates defined by HIPAA and developed a proactive and holistic risk management program that included the protection of patient information (PII). The project began with an ISO-based risk assessment of the Beaumont environment, which was conducted by VioPoint using the Modulo Risk Manager solution. The resulting risk baseline was used to develop a multi-year roadmap for the security program that defined and prioritized projects based on the relative impact they would have on the overall risk profile at Beaumont. “By partnering with VioPoint and Modulo, we were able to leverage an ISO-based risk assessment to translate our high risk areas into a two year actionable plan – defining both strategic and tactical project-based initiatives,” commented Subra Sripada, Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Beaumont Health System, who continued by adding, “we are excited about being nationally recognized for excellence in our risk-based approach to protecting patient information.”
