Today, patient information resides on laptops, mobile devices, and databases. Consumer devices enable clinicians and physicians to be readily connected but can also facilitate communication and data transfers through the Internet that can be risky for healthcare providers, HIPAA compliance, and security. As a result, the risk of data breaches has increased significantly, along with the risk of subsequent regulatory fines, litigation, and damage to your reputation. Yet, utilizing and analyzing this data is critical and assists in providing stronger healthcare services.
