Leading U.S. Hospital Secures Electronic Healthcare Records and Ensures Compliance with Splunk Software

Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK), provider of the leading software platform for real-time operational intelligence, today announced that Middlesex Hospital, recognized as a HIMSS Stage 6 hospital, Hospital & Healthcare Network’s Most Wired and ranked one of the top 100 hospitals in the U.S., recently expanded its use of Splunk® Enterprise to secure Electronic Healthcare Records (EHR) and ensure regulatory compliance across its entire hospital IT network. Critical applications on these systems service the main hospital, three emergency departments and many off-site primary care and specialty services locations. Middlesex originally selected Splunk software in 2013 to achieve global visibility and maintain optimal uptime performance on its Windows-based networked operating systems. Watch the Middlesex Hospital video to learn more about Splunk software’s impact.

“Splunk software is a critical part of our compliance initiatives at Middlesex Hospital in support of Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements for the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs. It also helps the hospital save hundreds of thousands of dollars by eliminating unnecessary applications and technologies,” said Richard Schubach, director of IT, Middlesex Hospital. “Splunk software immediately proved its value by helping us to transform IT operations and accomplish our top priorities at the hospital – protecting our patients’ privacy and ensuring regulatory compliance.”

Splunk software helps enable customers to ensure efficient adherence to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. Middlesex Hospital can also now review activity on the network and identify suspicious behavior. Recently, leveraging Splunk software, the hospital was able to swiftly conduct investigations to determine if there was inappropriate access to electronic protected health information (ePHI). In IT operations, Middlesex Hospital reports that Splunk software helped to turn resolution times from hours or days to minutes or seconds – a critical turnaround given the importance of these systems.

“Splunk is honored to be a growing part of Middlesex Hospital’s focus on healthcare IT innovation,” said Tapan Bhatt, vice president of business analytics, Splunk. “Middlesex Hospital is part of a rapidly growing list of healthcare providers that mine machine data insights from Splunk for IT operations, security, patient privacy, compliance and informatics. We look forward to seeing what the hospital does next, especially as they explore using Splunk software to gain real-time insights from data produced by connected medical devices.”
