April 17, 2013 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions, will be participating in the 17th Annual Compliance Institute Conference. Yo Delmar, Vice President of GRC Solutions at MetricStream, will be hosting a session on the intricacies of measuring social media risk. This three-day conference will be held from April 21st to 24th, 2013 in Washington, DC and will consist of over 190 speakers, over 142 sessions, and 9 different tracks, all covering different aspects of health care compliance.

Health care is a vast field, which is growing as a result of various medical breakthroughs and a host of new services. However, there are confidentiality nuances attached to these services as a result of the Patient Health Information (PHI) act. Social media is one of the latest factors that is breaking through barriers, and it is easier than ever for sensitive information to be published without permission. Keeping patient and organizational information safe from undue exposure on social media sites is therefore of paramount importance. The 2013 HCCA Compliance Institute Conference will discuss all of the recent changes in the health care compliance world and will help compliance professionals bring order to this state of confusion.

The event will host many informative sessions which will bring insight and best practices to professionals such as health care compliance professionals, staff trainers, health care senior executives and leaders, risk managers, privacy officers, and many more. The information shared at the event will address the myriad of risks, including social media risk, and will allow these professionals to equip themselves with the necessary knowledge for implementing controls in order to satisfactorily comply with all applicable regulations.

Ms. Delmar will discuss the challenges social media poses to the health care industry at large, and how organizations can plan to embed social media risk management principles into their compliance program. Her speaking session titled ‘Monitoring, Measuring, and Mitigating Social Media Risk’ is scheduled to take place from on April 22nd, 2013 from 3pm - 4pm.
