CA Helps Louisiana Healthcare Measures

CA is working to secure the Louisiana Rural Hospital Coalition’s online Louisiana Rural Health Information Exchange (LARHIX) with support from its Security and Compliance business unit.
 
Created in response to the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, LARHIX improves healthcare for residents of Louisiana’s rural communities, while working to control costs. 
 
 “The State of Louisiana is a microcosm of the entire country when it comes to healthcare, ” said Alan Levine, secretary, Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals. “Costs escalate while patient care suffers. To address this problem, Louisiana is using technology to help provide the best healthcare possible while controlling cost, maintaining patient privacy and complying with mandates such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.”
 
CA is responsible for safeguarding the LARHIX portal and the private patient information therein.  Such measures will allow doctors and clinicians to safely collaborate on patient care online. 
 
 “The security infrastructure for the Health Information Exchange was the most important aspect of the project. We were looking for a system that could protect against unauthorized access to patient information from inside, outside and everything in between, while ensuring scalability for future growth, ” said Jamie Welch, chief information officer for the LARHIX and Louisiana Rural Hospital Coalition. “We already have supported better care from the participating facilities by improving access to medical data and treatment information, and minimizing patient travel.”
