Privacy, Protection & a Proactive Approach
One thing is for certain, when it comes to operating a medical business, there is no cutting corners. Over the past few years, governing bodies such as HIPAA, have been cracking down on enforcement of regulations. In fact, HIPAA cases and fines are up over 25% in the past 3 years. This puts an enormous strain on the medical facility and staff. While most of that worry comes from the medical team, there is also worry coming from the patients. Patient data has become the #1 concern to medical executives and finding technology approaches to combat incoming threats is a close second.
