Saving Lives and Protecting Data
Today’s healthcare industry are expanding beyond electrocardiogram( ECG or EKG) , complete blood count (CBC), and Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to include Electronic protected health information (ePHI), Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability (HIPAA) Act, and. Indeed, modern healthcare organizations face a twofold challenge. That is, provide quality healthcare while complying with regulations concerning privacy and data security. Additionally, the risk of a data breach is not limited to the organization itself. Healthcare organizations are now responsible for the data security of their business associates as well.
Due to Electronic health records and enterprise-wide integrated information systems ,new challenges for healthcare providers are introduced. Notably, they must actively assess and manage the risk associated with their patients’ health as well as their personal health information.
Under the new reforms, healthcare payers must find ways to manage risk and improve the efficiency of their business operations. In addition, they must meet demands of a number of stakeholders, including members, employers, investors, and regulators.
Healthy IT Security
For healthcare organizations of every size, a proactive, balanced, and integrated approach to IT security is the most effective strategy. Therefore, a comprehensive security plan should include:
- Organizational Risk Assessment
