"A New Prescription for Privacy: Understanding and Meeting Security Requirements for Electronic Health Records"
This report looks at the challenges and requirements of protecting confidential patient data online and the risk of security breaches in the world of EHR.
Technology continues to make information more readily available to a larger group of people than ever before. Yet even as the latest technological advances bring a greater wealth of opportunities for sharing and distributing knowledge, each advance also increases the risk that sensitive data will land in the wrong hands. The more sensitive the data, the greater the risk—and few industries handle a larger volume of sensitive data than the healthcare industry.
No matter how your organization decides to secure its EHR system, working with a trusted third party like Symantec will help ensure that patient records are always protected with the most advanced security solutions currently available. With Symantec, providers can be sure that their EHR systems—and the vital data they contain—are safe, so doctors and hospitals can focus on delivering the best possible care to their patients.
