We are pleased to announce that Michael Parisi, Brian Kline, Michael Mead, and Howard Rosen will co-present a session at the Paubox Spring Summit 2021, taking place on Tuesday, April 6.

His extensive background in IT systems at the start of his career, including employment with NASA in the early 2000s, helps Mead to be aware of not only the needs of healthcare systems but the technology that can be used to do it.

Named one of the top 100 Innovators of the Next Century (Rockefeller Foundation) and one of the Top 30 mHealth Innovators by the mHealth Alliance (United Nations Foundation) and with 15 years of experience under his belt, Rosen has established himself as a health thought leader. A Schulich MBA with over two decades of experience as a film and television producer, Rosen had a unique perspective from which to approach the issue of adherence and patient engagement from which LifeWIRE evolved.

Demonstrating Security and Privacy with a Uniform Approach

This session will focus on A Uniform Approach to Sharing Assurances and Other Certifications

Attendees will learn from established industry leaders how to demonstrate that they meet a variety of security and privacy requirements such as the HIPAA Security & Privacy Rules, NIST, ISO, PCI, and other standards. 

RELATED: Understanding and Implementing HIPAA Rules

Healthcare entities and related business associates must often reply to hundreds of individual audit requests and customer questionnaires annually in response to requests for proposals; many of these responses require separate analysis and responses to the same or overlapping questions. In addition, entities responding to these third-party requests must do so using a wide variety of forms and reporting formats.

At the Paubox Spring Summit, Parisi, Kline, Mead, and Rosen will share their relevant experiences and insight regarding the management and oversight of sharing such assurances and certifications.
