RSA Identification Verification for Health Care

Definition - What does RSA Identification Verification for Health Care mean?

RSA identification verification for health care is a real-time identity authentication product produced by RSA Security Inc. RSA identification verification enlists knowledge-based authentication (KBA) to help ensure that sensitive electronic health records (EHR) are accessed only by authorized users. The following steps in the process include:

  1. Identification proofing
  2. Authentication
  3. Risk assessment

The RSA verification process for health care can help prevent identify theft and protect those seeking access to EHRs for malicious reasons or to discover someone's health status for purposes other than health care treatment.

Techopedia explains RSA Identification Verification for Health Care

RSA identification verification for health care is a way in which security managers can assign and oversee access credentials to confidential EHR information. It can also provide patients with access to their own medical records in order to obtain information and decide who may be permitted to view their electronic health data.

The initial KBA process quickly searches public records for help in granting user access. This identification proofing process helps determine whether an individual can gain access to the EHR even if they're infrequent users or first-time users. The authentication process lists a series of questions to answer. The final process is risk assessment, which establishes the number of times the user has tried to sign on, among other things. It provides alternative identifiers other than medical record numbers and Social Security numbers, which increases security.

This process is noted to save IT and therefore health care costs while determining user access in a very quick and innovative manner.
