Wednesday, November 27, 2013 FairWarning, Inc. the inventor, patent holder and world’s leading supplier of privacy monitoring solutions for electronic health records, today announced Dr. Ann Cavoukian, the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario, has joined the judging panel for FairWarning®’s Privacy Excellence Awards program. The Privacy Excellence Awards program is the first program of its kind and was developed by FairWarning® to showcase healthcare leaders around the world who are committed to delivering better care and creating a culture of privacy and compliance through courage, innovation, and dedication. These awards are a celebration of the care providers that work to actively expand trust in Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and ensure patients receive the best care possible.






Dr. Ann Cavoukian is recognized as one of the leading privacy experts in the world. She is a privacy pioneer who for more than two decades has tirelessly promoted and advocated for the citizens and patients she protects. She has been involved in numerous international committees focused on privacy, security, technology and business, and endeavors to focus on strengthening consumer confidence and trust in emerging technology applications. Noted for her seminal work on Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs), her principles of Privacy by Design seek to proactively embed privacy into the design specifications of information technology and accountable business practices, thereby achieving the strongest protection possible.

FairWarning® has long promoted the establishment of privacy protocols that ensure patient privacy monitoring for misuse of access and timely remediation of breaches. Similarly, Privacy by Design requires architects and operators to keep the interests of the individual uppermost by offering such measures as strong privacy defaults, appropriate notice, and empowering user-friendly options. The Privacy by Design program and requirements closely mirror the best practices aggressively promoted by FairWarning and employed by its customers – contenders for a Privacy Excellence Award. These closely aligned philosophies led FairWarning® to request Dr. Cavoukian’s participation in the Privacy Excellence Awards.

”Dr. Cavoukian is perhaps one of the most well-known and respected global champions for privacy. She has worked passionately and tirelessly to elevate privacy in healthcare, raise the bar for patient privacy rights and evangelize the importance of building privacy into the design of any care organization,” stated Kurt Long, CEO and Founder of FairWarning®. “Her participation in the Privacy Excellence Awards is exciting for FairWarning® as philosophically our goals of promoting privacy are aligned and she is unmatched in reputation and commitment to elevating privacy on a global level.”

“Personal health information contains some of the most intimate details of a person’s life and must be strongly safeguarded at all times,” says Dr. Cavoukian. “I look forward to judging the Privacy Excellence Awards, and honoring health care providers who have made an exemplary commitment to privacy protection.”

FairWarning® has educated health care providers around the globe on the critical nature of embedding privacy into the culture of the organization. Our customers, with commitment and dedication repeatedly demonstrate courage and innovation in the development and sustainment of privacy based programs. The Privacy Excellence Awards will identify, highlight and recognize the hard-earned achievement of leading care providers from the US, Canada and the UK who aggressively protect patient privacy and demonstrate an unwavering commitment to regulatory compliance. Their stories and successes will offer insights and lessons learned for other care providers to leverage in their organizations’ privacy initiatives.

The role of Dr. Cavoukian and the other judges will be to select six care providers from the US, Canada and UK to be awarded with the high honor of a Privacy Excellence Award. The highest scoring organization worldwide will receive an Overall Achievement Award. Additionally, an award for Visionary of the Year will be bestowed upon an organization that exemplifies how an imaginative and enterprising spirit and custom privacy program results in a strong culture of patient privacy.
