First, do no harm. Since the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) was passed in 2013, regulations have been evolving with new industry standards to ensure the security of Protected Health Information (PHI) in the age of technology. As you move, change, or add sensitive patient data, how do you ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronically protected health information (ePHI)– and that you are not knowingly placing your patients’ PHI in harm’s way? As a healthcare provider, you must know your responsibilities in keeping your patients protected.
Healthcare providers are targeted by cybercriminals every day. The impact on those who fall victim to a breach can be devastating to both their practice and patients. Ask yourself these questions to evaluate your current technology and what you need to do to proactively keep your information, medical practice, and patients safe from cybercriminals.
Is your current technology RELIABLE, TRUSTWORTHY, AND CAPABLE? When’s the last time you UPDATED your medical equipment? Is your information properly BACKED UP AND PROTECTED? Do you have A RESPONSE PLAN for your practice and patients? What is your business continuity and DISASTER RECOVERY plan? How long CAN YOU AFFORD TO BE DOWN without access to the information? Do you have the RIGHT POLICIES in place? Are your EMPLOYEES TRAINED on how to prevent/handle cyberattacks? What is your CYBERSECURITY BUDGET? How much CAN YOU AFFORD TO LOSE in a cyberattack? Remember, as a healthcare provider it is your duty to protect your patients and their data and to Do No Harm.
