BALTIMORE, May 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Protenus, the healthcare compliance analytics platform that protects patient privacy for the nation's leading health systems, announces today that it has been included as a May 2019 Cool Vendor in Healthcare Artificial Intelligence by Gartner, Inc.
Founded in 2014, Protenus uses artificial intelligence (AI) to review and document on 100% of events taking place inside a hospital's EHR and ancillary systems. These advanced analytics proactively detect inappropriate transactions and provide health systems full insight into how health data is used throughout their organizations, providing insight into such threats as HIPAA privacy breaches and controlled substance diversion. AI-powered analytics help healthcare compliance teams reduce risk, document on every access to patient data and reduce costs across the organization.
"We consider our inclusion in Gartner's Cool Vendor report additional confirmation that helping healthcare compliance teams proactively reduce risk has proven the potential of AI-powered analytics in this space," said Robert Lord, Co-founder and President of Protenus. "We believe that Gartner's recognition of Protenus' leadership in Healthcare Compliance Analytics is an important milestone in our industry's evolution. We are honored to be named a Cool Vendor, and know that this is because of our innovative customers, and our world-class team."
Protenus was also named the 2019 KLAS Category Leader in Patient Privacy Monitoring and one of the 2018 Modern Healthcare's Best Places to Work in Healthcare. Protenus co-founders were recently named finalists for the 2019 EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award and were recognized on a list of Becker's Hospital Review Rising Stars in Healthcare in 2018.
The report notes, "Most healthcare providers are not tracking application access, putting patient data at risk, and their tools do not present information in an actionable way to predict and prevent internal patient privacy breaches…" It goes on to recommend that Healthcare CIOs "protect PHI (protected health information) from insider breaches by deploying patient privacy monitoring tools with strong forensic tools, compliance analytics and report automation capabilities."
Gartner is the world's leading research and advisory company.
