It seems like every week there’s news of another notable health system falling victim to a security breach where patient PHI (protected health information) is exposed. In fact, according to The Washington Post, healthcare data breaches have affected more than 30 million patients to date and have resulted in millions of dollars in penalties against offending healthcare providers. This disturbing trend has hospitals, physician practices, and other healthcare facilities scared stiff. Many are re-evaluating their technology initiatives or scrutinizing their existing technology infrastructures as a result.
The fact of the matter is most health data breaches today follow a very similar pattern. Many healthcare providers that fall victim to a breach are vulnerable for the same reasons — reasons that can be easily identified, outlined, and ultimately, corrected. In this 60-minute free webinar sponsored by ClearDATA and EMC, Health IT Outcomes editor in chief Ken Congdon and an expert panel will take an unbiased look at the root causes behind some of the most prolific health data breaches to date. These presenters will then provide attendees with proven tips and advice for how to shore up their health data defenses. Register today for this enlightening web event.
