Share Article

This paper from Proxense explains what's behind skyrocketing electronic health records privacy infractions, the shortcomings of existing security approaches, and how automated access control can help healthcare organizations reduce their risks related to EHRs/EPRs.

Proxense, a wireless technology company providing advanced real-time location and access control systems for healthcare on a single platform, has released a new white paper, "Helping health care providers avoid electronic health records security breaches with true proximity technology." The paper is free to download at, and includes a one-page executive summary.

“Every day there are more troubling newspaper reports about fines, lawsuits and even criminal penalties resulting from unintentional releases of private patient records,” notes John Giobbi, Proxense CEO. “Our paper summarizes why we're seeing more infractions, the shortcomings of existing security approaches, and how automated access and identity management can help healthcare organizations reduce their risks."

Proxense’s platform--ProxNET™--is the only wireless system that runs hands-free, instant sign-on/sign-off and real-time location system (RTLS) applications simultaneously on a single, multi-purpose network. It features lower installation, training, support and maintenance costs, a simple search interface for finding data and generating reports, and the capacity to integrate legacy and new third-party applications as needed.
