Our internal Veritas Digital Compliance 'Braintrust' collaborated on a set of Veritas Information Classifier (VIC) policies that may be useful for tagging COVID-19 related content with Enterprise Vault, Enterprise Vault.cloud, eDiscovery Platform, Data Insight & Information Studio:
US-COVID-19 - Consists of several patterns for different types of keywords (Common term, people, drugs, and the ICD 10 CM Diagnosis Index patterns below)
US-COVID-19 ICD 10 CM Diagnosis Indexes (CDC Feb-Apr-2020) - Consolidated list of CDC diagnosis Indexes across several periods where the CDC provided guidance (coding guidance changed over time due to speed of the pandemic)
US-COVID-19 ICD 10 CM Exposure Diagnosis Index (CDC Feb-Apr-2020) - Diagnosis index for confirmed exposure to COVID-19
US-COVID-19 ICD 10 CM Ruled Out Diagnosis Index (CDC Feb-Apr-2020) - Diagnosis index for exposure to COVID-19 being ruled out
US-COVID-19 ICD 10 CM Signs and Symptoms Diagnosis Indexes (CDC Feb-Apr-2020) - Diagnosis index for signs and symptoms related to COVID-19
US-COVID-19 ICD 10 CM Diagnosis Indexes possibly leading to COVID-19 (CDC-Feb-Apr-2020) - Other diagnosis codes potentially related to COVID-19
In the description of the ICD 10 CM policies there are links to some key CDC documents showing the guidance they provided over time. Tip: Download these files and use them for a quick test of the policies in your VIC environment. Tip: "Batch Link Downloader" is a cool extension you can use to bulk download docs for testing via Chrome.
Below is a screenshot of a test we performed using these CDC documents as well as a number of public documents from the NY State Office of Mental Health site. Note the classification tags in the 'Tags' column in EV Search below. You can use these tags in facet filters in our compliance and discovery solutions. See my other post in this group on how to import / export these VIC policy packages (the COVID-19 policy packaged is attached to this post).
Please provide feedback if you test these policies and if you make any additions or modification please consider sharing your updated policies here by attaching to a reply.
If you don't have a test environment and want to have a quick peek just send me a note and we can do a quick screen share.
Disclaimer: These policies are provided as an example (something to help get you started so you are not having to start from a 'blank page'). Please review and test them thoroughly and modify them to suit your requirements before putting them into production.
Note: These sample rules were exported from an EV 12.5.0 / VIC 2.2.1 enviornment. If you are running an older version of VIC you will see a warning saying "Newer package version", this is expected.
06/20/2020 - updated policies to contain optimizations to reduce false positives and changed naming of some items to reflect US centric ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes. ICD-10 is the international list of diagnosis codes and ICD-10-CM (Clinical Modification) is the version that the US NCHS has modified for use in the US. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/icd/icd10cm.htm

You may be wondering how to import policies you find here so you can test them or how to share policies you have created here for others to try and provide feedback.
Good news... it is VERY easy... just go to Polices page in VIC and either click Import or Export:
The VIC interface looks the same regardless which of the Veritas solutions you use it with:
More Info: If you happen to be using Enteprise Vault just follow the steps in the "Exporting or Importing Policies" section of the "Enterprise Vault™ Classification using the Veritas Information Classifier (v12.5)" document.

The purpose of this site is to share knowledge, best practices and actual policies in hopes of improving the effectiveness of Veritas Infomation Classifier across all the Veritas products that use it.
Veritas won't be able to endorse or accept liability for any of the policies that are submitted here but we hope that our employees, partners, and customers will be able to view/modify these policies to suit their needs.
