Health content has evolved into a conglomeration of interrelated and interdependent data, from physicians, clinicians, and pharmacist to patients and insurance billing professionals. It is estimated that HIPAA data breaches have increased nearly 150 percent in the last five years. Although amazing strides in health care modernization can be attributed to the consumerization of IT, and the bring your own device (BYOD) movement of the industry, keeping data safe while accessing information (device agnostic) is an increasingly complex and critical endeavor, with all the security and compliance risks that come with it.
While these are driving factors for positive change in health care, allowing providers to access patient data, billing information, clinical trial data and employee information on the fly, data access and security breaches have now reached a whole new level of challenges. In a recent health care roundtable, the majority of healthcare providers had defined procedures for securing devices and content; however, nearly 50 percent admitted the policies were not being followed.
Every healthcare IT executive needs a comprehensive approach, both strategic and tactical, to address these challenges, while providing ease of access and speed to value. Patient billing records, employee records and non-patient records, are highly vulnerable, with the most frequently lost or stolen information accessed across the continuum of care, as healthcare providers continue to use their personal devices to share records with other providers and third party systems.
Healthcare executives don’t have the luxury of waiting for their staff to become acclimated to new systems and the importance of following compliance processes and security requirements. They must incorporate better practices when it comes to protecting patient data without diminishing usability and the quality of care needed to access data faster and more efficiently.
