P2Sentinel is Cerner’s auditing solution for tracking end user access to confidential patient data in Millennium as well as other non-Cerner clinical solutions and infrastructure systems.

Under HIPAA, provider organizations must implement a system of accountability with regards to how patient information is accessed and used. Through P2Sentinel only Cerner can provide our clients with a single source of PHI audit events – Cerner and non-Cerner - necessary to meet the requirements of HIPAA, HITECH, and Meaningful Use.

Client Benefits

  • Addresses HIPAA and Meaningful Use requirements
  • Meets privacy and policy regulations – P2Sentinel measures audit-ability, policy accountability and improvement against said policy.
  • Auditing individual users – P2Sentinel provides insights into application access patterns – supporting access, policy or behavioral changes.
  • Rapid identification of suspect access enables quicker response to potential privacy and security breaches.
  • Exposure to unauthorized data access – P2 Sentinel identifies the data individuals accessed –pinpointing the amount and the specifics of the data compromised.

Features of P2Sentinel Enterprise

  • Centralized audit store provides for easy correlation of actions across multiple systems in the organization including Cerner Millennium and other third party applications.
  • Easy-to-use reporting makes it simple to provide a comprehensive view to the people who need the data for investigation/analysis.
  • Separation of Duties: Audit data cannot be manipulated by the DBAs since the data is stored in its own repository separate from the transaction system.
  • Superior Architecture: Efficient, redundant storage of years of log data while providing exceptional query performance over massive data volumes.
  • In report Filtering: Spreadsheet-like text filtering available within the report allowing for quicker analysis of the data
  • Forensic Investigation: Comprehensive incident response and investigation capability.
  • True enterprise scalability from small single-site deployments to large enterprise-wide, distributed architectures
  • Automated report delivery/e-mail notifications
  • Dashboards provide quick identification of potential security and privacy breaches
