Driving Directions 

In March of 2012, ANSI,  in partnership with The Shared Assessments Program, and ISA, released a new report calling for enhanced security to safeguard protected health information: The Financial Impact of Breached Protected Heath Information: A Business Case for Enhanced PHI Security.  

A core group of contributors* to this report recognized the need for industry-level support to expedite the adoption of PHI security best practices. The result of this realization resulted in the formation of the PHI Protection Network (PPN). 

The mission of the PPN is to: 

  • Encourage the use of a methodology to assess security risks and mitigate those that are unacceptable through a balanced investment strategy that provides an ROI to the organization;
  • Increasing awareness of, and investment in, solutions that achieve improved security of PHI;
  • Building a network of PHI Protectors and other key influencers in both the public and private sector to share best practices and accelerate success in improving PHI security.

*Contributors Include:

  • Mary Chaput, Clearwater Compliance, LLC
  • James Christiansen, Evantix
  • Rick Kam, ID Experts
  • Lisa MacKenzie, MacKenzie Marketing Group
  • Lynda Martel, DriveSavers Data Recovery, Inc.
  • Robin Slade, Santa Fe Group & Shared Assessments Program
  • Ed Stull, PHI Expert and Independent Consultant
  • Dick Wolfe, PHI Expert and Independent Consultant
