As the old saying goes, when it comes to hacks, it’s not a matter of if, but when. Every single healthcare organization is at risk for a potential data breach. As reported in a recent KPMG survey of C-level information technology stakeholders in the healthcare space, titled The Healthy Approach to Cyber Security, the number of security-related Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) violations and cyber attacks is only growing. Worse, most healthcare organizations report they don’t feel adequately prepared to defend themselves. It is estimated that, in the past 10 years, more than 30 million patient health records have been compromised—and millions more will likely be breached in the coming years.
Employees, clinicians and supporting staff alike, are generally a hospital’s weakest link when it comes to potential data breaches. And unless organizations can find the right tools to help clinicians, whose focus is first and foremost on patient care, quickly, easily, and securely manage patient data, it’s likely that they, too, will soon see their name listed among the hacked.
