“I think a great deal of importance falls on making sure the audience understands key technology concepts with respect to information security."

Nashville, Tenn (PRWEB) September 25, 2013

The mission behind the TAMHO symposium is to promote the advancement of effective behavioral health services, and be an advocate for people in need of care. Bringing a company, such as ProAccura, to the symposium allows participants to learn and absorb information about IT security.

With a skill set of IT planning, problem resolution, and technical staffing, Curtis was a great addition to this year’s lineup because of the always-evolving trends of IT in healthcare. His heavy focus on IT security and data privacy is vital in the healthcare world because of strict confidentiality policies and the increasing impact of HIPAA regulation.

“I think a great deal of importance falls on making sure the audience understands key technology concepts with respect to information security,” said Curtis. “After my session, I hope participants understand the high-level steps they can take to begin securing their environment.”

Curtis covered HIPAA Directives that deal directly with security in the healthcare industry. The HIPAA Security Rule specifically focuses on the safeguarding of electronic protected health information (EPHI).

The symposium also featured two sessions led by David Hilley, of Hilley Health, and John Hilley, of Patmos LLC, both of Nashville.
