Ascentium and Concept Searching Address PHI/PII
Ascentium, a Concept Searching strategic partner with extensive taxonomy expertise, discusses the challenge of identifying and securing Protected Health Information (PHI) on the Ascentium Taxonomy Blog. Ascentium taxonomy services is partnering with Concept Searching to provide a solution to mitigate the risk of PHI/PII exposures. The Concept Searching technologies use advanced algorithms which are able to automatically identify content containing PHI from among a variety of content types — emails, faxes, web pages, scanned documents, and Microsoft Office applications — and channel that content to a separate location for review and disposition by records managers. Ascentium’s taxonomy team is able to customize those algorithms using different selection criteria, including identifiers defined by HIPAA as well as identifiers specific to individual organizations.
