In 2018, the UNM-HSC
Privacy Office announced a new proactive privacy monitoring solution from Maize
Analytics to ensure compliance with healthcare regulations and internal
Due to this 2018 change to HSC policy, workforce members are no longer permitted to look at their own EMR in PowerChart (Cerner)
By proactively protecting our patients’
privacy we will be:
- Building a reputation for privacy, helping us attract and retain patients
- Giving our patients confidence in their choice of healthcare provider
- Assuring patients that they can share sensitive information without fear of bad actors
- And positioning our organization for long-term success
Maize Analytics reporting and filtering
capabilities will allow the HSC Privacy Office to more quickly identify
suspicious activities — like snooping and identity theft – and distinguish them
from legitimate record accesses. The system will allow us to audit all access
to the electronic health record (EHR) so we can identify inappropriate access
more rapidly in our efforts to reduce privacy breaches and incidents. The
new system will audit all access of the EHR so it is important, per our policies,
to do the following:
the integrity of the electronic health record by only viewing your own medical record through the UNMH
access patient health information when you have a clinic or operational
need to do so. (Do not review the medical records of family, friends, or
access the minimum necessary information to perform your job to the
highest possible standard.
sure to log out of your workstation, laptop, and other devices to prevent
others from accessing patient information under your login.
